To afford Kylian Mbappé next summer, Real Madrid could sacrifice their two flops, Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale.
Always determined to attract Kylian Mbappé in his nets, Real Madrid would have visibly changed strategy. A time determined to break the bank to recruit him this summer, the Merengues could finally return to the charge next year with a particularly attractive contract offer. But before coming to seduce the French, who will be free in June 2022, Real Madrid will have to replenish its funds.
According to the British media The Athletic, Real Madrid are considering getting rid of their Eden Hazard and Gareth Bale flops to drastically reduce the wage bill. Between them, the Belgian and the Welsh indeed represent 13% of the club’s payroll. Their departure would represent no less than 175 million euros in savings over the entire season. Once the two players at the door, Florentino Pérez will have all the freedom to negotiate with Kylian Mbappé. At Real Madrid, he could earn a salary of around 750,000 euros per week, about the current salary of Gareth Bale. As a reminder, Mbappé now earns 520,000 euros per week at PSG, or as much as Eden Hazard at Real Madrid.
