Despite pocketing huge amounts of money in wages and sponsorship deals, the French midfielder is leading a low-key life, which is in complete contrast to that of most footballers playing at the top level.
The former Leicester City ace is understood to be driving a Mini Cooper, which cost him a paltry £20,000.

Kante has not changed a phone
Havertz has now shared a fresh insight into Kante's humble lifestyle, which further cements the midfielder's place as one of the modest footballers of modern history.
Havertz recently disclosed that the France international has not upgraded his phone for a decade.
Speaking to The Guardian, the German star insisted that Kante has no interest in material possessions such as flashy cars and fashion.
"I’ve met different characters. Toni Kroos is one: calm, down to earth, doesn’t care about flashy stuff. He knows life is not only football," Havertz said.
"N’Golo Kante is another. He’s had the same phone for 10 years, doesn’t care about cars, doesn’t care about clothes.
"You cannot judge people because of [spending]. If that makes them happy, I don’t care. Maybe in their heart they are also good people, they just want to act cool," he added.
Kante promises knee-slide celebration
Sports Brief reported that Kante promised his teammates a knee-slide celebration when he scores his next goal after his injury return.
Teammates Christian Pulisic, Ben Chilwell and Mykhailo Mudryk accosted the tireless midfielder in training and asked that he should do something different, particularly with his goal celebration.
Pulisic joked Kanté could score in a World Cup final and still don an unbothered goal celebration.
