As comedian Chris Rock pointed out some years ago, there is a difference between being rich and being wealthy. His example was a professional basketball player is rich, while the owner of the team, who pays that player is wealthy. A contract offer to a French soccer player would make him wealthy.

According to Front Office Sports, 24-year-old Kylian Mbappe has been offered a contract that surpasses the lifetime earnings of Los Angeles Lakers savior, LeBron James. For ONE year!

Saudi Arabian soccer team Al-Hilal has offered a record-setting $332 million transfer fee to be paid to Mbappe’s current team. The actual contract for the player would be a salary of $776 million, for ONE year.

In comparison, James has brought home $531 million over the course of his two decade NBA career.

Even after hearing about that contract offer made James comment on Twitter, ready to head to Saudi Arabia. He posted a clip of Tom Hanks’ “Forrest Gump” character running extremely fast down a road.

At only 24, Mbappe already makes more per year than James does, according to Forbes’ latest World’s 10 Highest-Paid Athletes 2023. He beat “King James” by a mere half a million as he made $120 million this past year in comparison to James taking home $119.5 million. He also has the highest playing salary in all of soccer and came in at number 3 on the list. He was the top earning Black athlete for that time period.
