Hazard pay reportedly works out to £188,000-a-week and while it is lesser than the £200,000-a-week salary that he netted during his time at Chelsea, it is understood that it is not a paycut considering that it was his an amount which was calculated without taking tax into account.
His salary will make him the second highest earner at Madrid, behind skipper Sergio Ramos who earns £10.7million-a-year net, which equates to around £206,000-a-week. The Belgian would look to increase his wage with time, considering that he is still at his peak and would expect more once he leads them to success in the future.
Hazard who made 352 appearances for Chelsea, while scoring 110 goals is expected to be presented to the fans at the Bernabeu on Thursday, where he will be given the No.7 shirt, previously worn by club legend, Cristiano Ronaldo.
