Real Madrid and Serbian national team footballer Luka Jović has a gross annual salary of €20,834,000, according to a specialist website for football salaries Capology. This puts Jović among the highest paid Real Madrid players.
The Serbian striker came to the Royal Club this summer in a €60m transfer from Eintracht Frankfurt. Jović has been able to negotiate quite a deal with the club owners and is currently the third-highest paid Real Madrid football player.
Only Eden Hazard with €31, 250,000, and Gareth Bale with €27,942,000 have higher salaries than Jović. The Serbian footballer is also more paid than Marcelo, Ramos, Kroos, Benzema, and Modrić.
The former Red Star player hasn’t scored for Real Madrid yet. He only started two matches so far, spending a total of 218 minutes in seven games. He scored 27 goals in 49 club matches for Eintracht last season. In his career, he scored an average of 0.08 goals per game in club competition.
It should be mentioned that taxes in Spain are quite high. According to the information from 2015, the taxes are as much as 52%, meaning that Jović will have to pay around €10 million of tax money.
