Real Madrid ended up having a very successful summer transfer window despite the lack of signings, as they have a profit of over €200m at the end of it.
As per Marca, this includes not only the transfer fees Los Blancos received for sold players but also the salaries which were taken off their books.
By selling the likes of Achraf Hakimi, Sergio Reguilon, Oscar Rodriguez, Dani Gomez and Jorge de Frutos, Madrid earned €90m.
The biggest earnings from deduction of salaries came from selling James Rodriguez and loaning out Gareth Bale – with Los Blancos saving €40m from getting them out!
Moreover, they sold or loaned out many youth academy players as well which helped save a lot of money and help their profits reach the big mark.
Remarkably, they’ve actually managed to accomplish the objective they set of earning €200m from this window and are in a better financial condition now than they were a few months ago.
