Revealed: The mammoth amount Jude Bellingham will earn at Real Madrid after Borussia Dortmund confirm record fee

The midfielder is on his way to the Spanish capital next summer, and will be paid handsomely

Jude Bellingham will earn in excess of 10m euros per season in Madrid after Borussia Dortmund confirmed that an agreement had been reached between the two clubs for the 19 year old to leave Germany for the Spanish capital.

The teenager, who missed the final game of the season and is set to miss the international break with a knee injury, has agreed terms on a deal that Dortmund claim will net the club ‘a fixed transfer compensation in the amount of 103.0 m. EUR’ along with ‘variable transfer fees up to a maximum total amount of around 30% of the amount of the fixed transfer fee has been agreed’, taking the total deal up to a possible 135m euros should he prove a success.

In completing the move, transfer expert Fabrizio Romano has shed more light on the inner workings of Bellingham’s move to the Bernabeu.

The Englishman has signed a six-year deal with Los Blancos, where he will take home between 10m and 12m euros after tax, which works out as around 230,000 euros per week.

With taxes included, he will be paid closer to 500,000 euros per week, though this amount pales in comparison to the incredible amounts offered to the likes of Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kante to make the move to Saudi Arabia in recent days.

Bellingham’s arrival will complete Real Madrid’s midfield overhaul, with the Englishman joining French duo Eduardo Camavinga and Aurelian Tchouameni as well as midfielder Federico Valverde. Despite the decision to keep hold of both Luka Modric and Toni Kroos for another season, there is hope that they will not need to add significantly in central areas for the best part of a decade.
