The immediate past manager of Real Madrid FC, Zinedine Zidane’s net worth has been revealed.
According to Celebrity Net Worth Magazine, Zidane is estimated to be worth £52 million ($70m).
This was earned through football contracts and endorsement deals.
When Zidane signed for Real in 2001, he was on a four-year contract that saw him get £3.5 million a season after tax, with a buy-out clause of £109 million.
When he took over as Real Madrid manager, Zidane earned £2.3 million, which breaks down to £44,000 per week.
However, after he revived the team’s season and won the Champions League, Zidane saw his wages double to £4.8 million at the end of the 2015/2016 season.
In September 2017, Zidane reportedly signed a new contract worth £7 million-a-year.
Zidane has earned an income from a range of endorsement deals such as the one he had with Adidas, which saw him open a new flagship store in Paris in 2017.
Zidane also featured in telecom giant Orange’s Euro 2016 advertising campaign, in which he searched for the world’s biggest football fans.
