The 2018 World Cup saw a number of stars shine but nobody did it better than Kylian Mbappe. The 19-year-old netted four times to help his country lift the biggest trophy available in football and keeps shining in his club PSG. Today, we want to compare what the French teenager earns as compared to other superstars at the same age.

He has won everything available in the Sport of Golf. He also helped popularise the game in a manner not seen before in history. In fact, he is considered by many as the best golfer of all time.

Washington Nationals star Bryce Harper will not take it well that Kylian Mbappe is earning 40 times what he earned at the age of 19 years. The Baseball star was named National League Most Valuable Player in 2015 among other awards. He is only 25 years but he has broken a number of records already. The only one he will not get close is what Mbappe is setting in soccer.
3. LeBron James- $4 Million
LeBron James shocked the World when the news broke he had signed for Los Angeles Lakers from his hometown franchise Cleveland Cavaliers. The dust has now settled and we are all looking forward to the new season. The King will not be amused to hear that Kylian Mbappe is earning five times what he earned when he was 19 years.
The 33-year-old has always been a star since his high school years. However, the biggest break came in 2012 when he won NBA title in two consecutive years. He was also named League and Finals MVP in two consecutive years. In 2014 he decided to return home and two years later he helped Cleveland Cavaliers lift their first ever title in 52 years. He ran down his contract and in 2018 he left once again to join LA Lakers in a four-year deal. At his age, this might be his last big deal.
