REAL MADRID have never been shy in spending a pretty penny to add to their stash of Galacticos.

After all, Los Blancos have broken the global transfer record FIVE times – from Luis Figo, Zinedine Zidane and Kaka to Cristiano Ronaldo and Gareth Bale.

But the Spanish giants aren’t just willing to spend big on transfer fees.

In fact, the reigning LaLiga champions are lumbered with the second-highest wage bill in world football, trailing only Barcelona.

Bale is far and away Real Madrid‘s top earner on £650,000 a week, despite being frozen out by current boss Zidane.

Tottenham agreed to pay half of the Welsh golf-lover’s wages to take him on loan for the season, with both clubs chipping in to the tune of £325,000 per week.

That means Real’s current highest earner is Eden Hazard on a staggering £416,000 per week.

The Belgian star, 30, has been limited to just 24 LaLiga appearances since joining from Chelsea in 2019 in deal rising from £88million to £150m.

Club legend Sergio Ramos is over £100,000 a week adrift of Hazard, taking home £312,000 per week.

Midfield stalwarts Toni Kroos and Luka Modric both pocket £210,000 weekly.

And, incredibly, a further 12 PLAYERS earn £100,000 per week or more – with 17 stars in total earning six-figures sum each week.

Flop striker Luka Jovic – now back on loan at Eintracht Frankfurt – commands £175,000 per week, narrowly ahead of Bernabeu icon Karim Benzema (£166,000).

Thibaut Courtois, Raphael Varane and Marcelo all rake in £150,000 per week.

Dani Carvajal, Isco, Alvaro Odriozola, Lucas Vazquez, Marco Asensio, Eder Militao and Borja Mayoral are the other stars to earn £100,000 per week or more.

At the foot of the table, backup stopper Andriy Lunin earns the least at the Galacaticos on £50,000 per week.

Ferland Mendy – the hero from last week’s late Champions League last-16 first-leg win over Atalanta – commands just £53,000 a week.

Star in the making Federico Valverde is third-from-bottom on £62,000 weekly.

Mariano, Vinicius Jr and Rodrygo all rake in £75,000 per week, with Arsenal loanee Martin Odegaard on £85,000, narrowly behind Nacho and Casemiro (£90,000).
