Raheem Sterling, Ben White and Marcus Rashford are also absent.

Bellingham's successful first season at Real Madrid

This season, Jude Bellingham's talent shone through for the whole world to see. After starting out in Birmingham, the midfielder progressed in Germany with Borussia Dortmund for three seasons. He eventually signed for Real Madrid in 2023 for over €100 million. To say that his first season was a success would be putting it mildly. He closed the season with a Spanish league title and, above all, 19 goals and 6 assists in La Liga. In all competitions, the number 5 played 46 games, scoring 25 goals and providing 14 assists. It's fair to say that his integration has been a success. Next season, he'll be expected to continue scoring and distilling a few passes to Kylian Mbappé, who is set to become his teammate in Spain.

To secure the services of the Englishman, Real Madrid had to convince him with a (very) handsome salary. At the time of his signing, the German media reported a salary of 20million euros (around £17million) per season, while the Spanish media reported a salary of 10 million euros (around £8million) per season. Even today, his precise wage has not been officially revealed. However, according to several sources, he would indeed earn 20 million euros per season. Some sources suggest 20.04 million, others 20.8 million. Whatever the sum, the young man is one of his team's highest-paid players.

Who are Real Madrid's highest-paid players?

According to specialist website Capology, Real Madrid's highest-paid player is none other than veteran Toni Kroos, who will retire after Euro 2024. He earns over 24 million euro, gross, per season. In second place is Austrian David Alaba, who was seriously injured at the start of the season, with around 22.5 million euros, gross, per year. Next in line? Another old hand, Luka Modric, with 21.88 million euros. After that comes Jude Bellingham, tied with... Vinicius Junior! Both allegedly earn 20.83 million euros per season.

Next in order are Federico Valverde, Thibaut Courtois, Eder Militao, Antonio Rudiger, Rodrygo and Frenchmen Aurélien Tchouaméni and Eduardo Camavinga. The latter earn around 240,000€ a week, or 12.5€ million over a year. They are all set to be joined by a certain Kylian Mbappé next season. As you know, Madrid president Florentino Perez didn't have to break out the checkbook to pay a transfer fee to get him from Paris Saint-Germain, as the French international is free of all contracts from 30 June 2024. He should, however, make up for this in salary, even though the striker will earn much less than he would in France. In Spain, Mbappé could earn between 15€ and 20€ million net per year. A salary that would be enhanced by numerous bonuses.
