Belgian hitman Eden Hazard has been earning humongous amounts of money at Real Madrid.

Hazard is by far the highest paid player in the Madrid team, earning a weekly salary of £416,000. Despite this, Hazard has played just 24 La Liga games since arriving in June 2019, scoring only three league goals.

This means that the former Chelsea forward is earning more money than modern day Real Madrid legends Sergio Ramos (£312,000 per week), Toni Kroos (£210,000), Luka Modric (£210,000) and Karim Benzema (£166,000).

Well, Gareth Bale is still officially on the biggest contract at the club, but half of his reported £650,000 per week is being covered by Tottenham until the end of the season.

Hazard has struggled to find himself at Real Madrid and is now closing in on two seasons at the club. Injuries have halted his progress in Spain and Zidane is not able to utilise the player of his class as he would have liked or hoped.

Overall, according to The Sun, Real have 17 players on their books earning in excess of £100,000 per week (although that includes the on loan Bale and Luka Jovic, who has been loaned back to Eintracht Frankfurt).

While it looks unlikely, it will be totally understandable and logical if Real Madrid decide to cut off the highest earning player in their team in order to reduce pressure on their finances in the upcoming summer transfer window.
