Top Highest-Paid African Footballers August



Football (soccer) fans across the world were shocked in July when Saudi Arabian team, Al-Hilal, made a record 300 million euro ($332 million) bid for Paris Saint-Germain player, Kylian Mbappe.

The deal, according to reports was turned down by the player after which PSG reportedly offered him a €1 billion deal to reject a possible move to Real Madrid.

After Mbappe’s deal fell through, Al-Hilal also offered €140m (£120.3m) for Nigerian and Napoli player, with wages on offer in the region of £1m per week.

The offer was also rejected by Napoli. If it had been accepted, Nigeria’s Osimhen would have been the highest paid footballer in Africa.

Since that did not happen, Sadio Mane of Senegal after his recent move to Saudi Arabia’s club, Al-Nassr became the highest paid player in Africa.
