Real Madrid: Salary and weekly wages of every first team star revealed
The wages of some of these Real Madrid stars are unbelievable!
Real Madrid are one of the biggest (if not the biggest) clubs in world football and it is no surprise to see that the players in Real Madrid are paid very well. Filled with stars like Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, Sergio Ramos and Luka Modric, the wage bill of Los Blancos is close to the entire transfer budget of some small clubs in Europe.
However, there are some surprising cases of some players being grossly underpaid while there are also some first team stars who get much more than they deserve. The likes of Marco Asensio and Isco will definitely be getting huge raises in their new contracts while players like Danilo and Coentrao could be sold in the summer to reduce the wage bill.
Let us now take a look at the wages of every first team Real Madrid star:
#24 Ruben Yanez (Goalkeeper) – £4000/week
The 23-year-old Real Madrid shot stopper is the third choice goalkeeper and is the lowest paid player in the Real Madrid squad. The Spaniard has been in the squad since 2015 and was part of the 2015/16 Champions League winning squad.
#23 Mariano Diaz (Striker) – £5000/week
Prolific with the Real Madrid Castilla squad last season, Mariano earned a call-up to the senior side this year. Still only 23, the pacy striker has plenty of potential and has impressed in whatever limited opportunities he has got. This season, Mariano has managed to score 5 goals in 12 appearances.
#22 Marco Asensio (Attacking midfielder) – £10,000/week
Probably the most underpaid player in this wonderful Madrid squad, Marco Asensio has been so impressive that Zidane on many occasions has preferred him over established stars like James Rodriguez and Isco. Blessed with a bright future, Asensio is certainly due for a huge rise if and when he signs a new contract.
#21 Kiko Casilla (Goalkeeper) – £25,000/week
A Real Madrid youth product, 30-year-old Kiko Casilla found opportunities hard to come by initially at his boyhood club. After moving to Espanyol, Casilla established himself as one of the League’s premier shot-stoppers and earned himself a move back to Madrid. He is currently the second choice goalkeeper behind Costa Rican Keylor Navas.
