Real Madrid are in the league of their own as far as recent success is concerned, 4 champions league titles and last 5 years and beating Barcelona to La Liga title in 2016-17 season wrapped up incredible few seasons for Madrid. However unlike the glactico era Real Madrid has kind of changed their philosophy as they no longer spend big money on established players. Going into the 2018-19 season the major impact will be Ronaldo’s departure from the club and appointment of new manager Julen Lopetegui. We take a look at entire Real Madrid squad contracts and player salaries in 2018-19 season.
Real Madrid are widely considered as the biggest club in the world and their recent success goes along way to justify the tag. However Florentino Perez will be gutted of losing the “Richest Club” tag to Manchester United who became the most valuable team in the world in 2017 and 2018. With the departure of Ronaldo, Madrid have some way to go as far as catching Manchester United in commercial aspects.
Real Madrid’s wage bill is lower than that of Barcelona but way ahead of any other spanish side. We can safely assume Madrid’s wage bill is set to decrease as have let go Cristiano Ronaldo and that free up a lot of wages. Madrid have only signed Vinícius Júnior (£40.5m), Álvaro Odriozola (£27m) and Andriy Lunin (£7.65m) so far in the summer transfer window. However one big name is expected to arrive at the club before the window shuts down with Hazard, Neymar and Lewandowski linked to the club.
Real Madrid Highest Paid Player:
- Cristiano Ronaldo has left the club after 9 highly successful seasons with the club as he joined Juventus for a record (£105m). After Ronaldo’s departure Gareth Bale is the highest paid player in the squad with weekly salary of around £350,000 a week.
- Toni Kroos, Casemiro and Marco Asensio all signed new financially imroved deals in the last few months. Isco also signed highly lucrative contract with the club which will keep him with Real Madrid till 2022.
