BIG ONE!! Hazard Becomes Real Madrid’s Highest Paid Player
Eden Hazard will become the highest-paid player at Real Madrid, when he completes his £130million move from Chelsea in the coming days, the Evening Standard reports.
Hazard’s salary will be doubled to £400,000, automatically making him one of the highest earners with the Spanish giants.
The 28-year-old will leapfrog some of the big names, who have been part of the Los Blancos squad for the last trophy-laden decade.
Bale previously led the way, with an eye-watering £346,000 per-week salary or £18million a year, after tax.
Toni Kroos and captain Sergio Ramos both pocket £200,000 a week with Madrid, while Luka Modric takes home a weekly £180,000.
