Though, the attacker did not take pay cut to join his new club, however, his wage at the Bridge is reported as a gross total.

According to report from the club, only captain Sergio Ramos is the highest paid player at the club.

The Spaniard currently earns a sum of £10.7 million-a-year net (€12m-a-year), which equates to around £206,000-a-week.

The 33-year-old has scored 59 goals in 419 appearances for the Galacticos since he joined them from Sevilla in 2005.
