Who are the highest-paid players under Carlo Ancelotti this season? Boardroom dives into the details of Real Madrid wage spending currently on the books.

Real Madrid is one of the most successful soccer clubs in the world, with a lengthy and prestigious history of winning trophies. Founded in 1902, the Spanish club based in Madrid has won a top-flight record 34 La Liga titles, affirming itself as a powerhouse in European football. In addition to La Liga, Real Madrid has lifted 19 Copa del Rey titles, the Spanish domestic cup competition. Los Blancos have been equally successful internationally, winning 13 European Cup/Champions League titles, marking a competition record.

Their achievements have filled a trophy cabinet that would come to be the benchmark for Europe’s top clubs — however, the club’s best periods of great success are also tied to being one of the wealthier, most globally-supported sporting organizations there is.

In the 1990s and early 2000s, Real Madrid invested heavily in player transfers and wages, bringing in several high-profile stars on big contracts, such as Zinedine Zidane, Ronaldo, and David Beckham. Today, the club is home to six of the top 10 highest-paid players in La Liga, including reigning Ballon d’Or winner Karim Benzema. This massively expensive strategy allowed the club to win the trophies that define its position as one of the most successful clubs in the world.

So, who are the highest-paid players under manager Carlo Ancelotti in 2022-23 as they prepare for yet another Champions League title run? Let’s look at the full details of this year’s Real Madrid salaries and contracts on the books.
