With Jude Bellingham’s transition from Borussia Dortmund to Real Madrid confirmed the financial intricacies of his contract have been revealed.
This includes not only the midfielder’s wage but also the contract details associated with his move to Bernabeu.
As Bellingham joins the ranks of Real Madrid, he also aligns himself with an exclusive group of English players who’ve had the honor of playing for the distinguished Spanish club.
These include names such as Michael Owen and David Beckham. The 19-year-old’s rise from a promising player to one of the world’s top midfielders has been spectacular, and his move to Real Madrid speaks volumes about his talent.
For securing Bellingham’s services, Real Madrid will reportedly pay an initial £88.5 million. However, with additional elements in the contract, this fee has the potential to surge to £115 million.
This hefty price tag implies high expectations for Bellingham’s future performances and influence on the team.
The young midfielder’s Real Madrid tenure will span six years, as confirmed by the club. This substantial period aligns Jude Bellingham with the club until the summer of 2029 when he will be 25.
In the fast-paced world of football, such a long-term contract indicates the club’s profound trust in the Englishman’s abilities.
Moreover, there are reports, such as from the Spanish outlet Cadena SAR, that Bellingham’s release clause is a staggering €1 billion.
Although Real Madrid hasn’t officially confirmed this figure, such a high clause further reflects the value the club sees in Bellingham.
Rumors about Bellingham’s wage started circulating long before the official confirmation of his move to Real Madrid.
These speculated figures indicated a whopping £12 million per year, equivalent to £1 million per month.
If these numbers hold, Jude Bellingham will be among the highest-earning players in Spanish football.
