Ligue 1 top wages: Mbappé earns almost double that of Messi and Neymar, Clement among the highest paid coaches in France

The French sports newspaper publishes the wages of the Ligue 1 every year and it is of course no surprise that the list is dominated again this year by the petrodollars from Paris. The entire top ten consists of players from PSG, fifteen of the twenty best paid players at our southern neighbors wear the shirt of the leader.

With six million euros gross per month – yes: per month, not per year! – Kylian Mbappé definitely takes the cake in France. To convince their top French striker to extend his expiring contract, PSG last year offered Mbappé one of the toughest contracts in the sport’s history. He earns almost as much as fellow stars Neymar (€3 675,000) and Messi (€3 375,000) combined. Mind you, this is only about salaries without premiums.

L’Equipe’s main conclusion is that inflation has also hit French football. Almost every club has seen its payroll increase in the past year. Exceptions to this are AS Monaco and Lille. Monaco coach Philippe Clement is the sixth highest paid coach in France with 200,000 euros gross per month. That is a lot more than Will Still, the success coach of Reims who dangles at the bottom with 18,500 euros gross per month.

Thanks to L’Equipe, we also know the wages of a number of Belgian players who are active in France. For example, we know that Theate (Rennes) earns 180,000 euros gross, Matz Sels is the second best paid player at Strasbourg with 130,000 euros and Openda (Lens) earns 100,000 euros and Dejaegere (Toulouse) 60,000 euros.
