Coronavirus effects at Real Madrid: 75 million euros in salary savings and 7 players on the track to be dropped.
Real Madrid, the team coached by Zinedine Zidane, is looking to get rid of seven players, with Gareth Bale on top of the list, and the have the other “blancos” contracts cut by 10-20%.
If Barcelona, Atletico and Alaves cut their players’ wages by 70%, Real Madrid doesn’t make such drastic cuts to overcome the crisis caused by the pandemic.
Only between 10 and 20 percent would lose the “blancos” footballers, whose contracts represent 52 percent of the season’s expenses.
