How much does he earn per hour, day, week, month and year
As the transfer deadline approached, Marcos Alonso had opted to return to Spain and join Barcelona. Here, find out his reported earnings per hour, day, week, month and year with the La Liga side.
There have been many endless transfer sagas involving Barcelona this summer, the first of which included Robert Lewandowski. The acquisition of Raphinha and Jules Kounde came with a lot of turmoil, and both included Chelsea. Barcelona were finally able to secure the services of their top free agents. Those who are not Cesar Azpilicueta.
Marcos Alonso, like many others, had been linked with a transfer for some time. He moved to Barcelona with Hector Bellerin on the last day of the transfer window. The full-back left Chelsea after six years and over 200 competitive appearances, in which he won the Premier League, UEFA Champions League and UEFA Europa League.
There has been a blockage in Alonso’s transfer after a deal was agreed with Barcelona in April. Xavi Hernandez wanted to sign the player but he also trusted Jordi Alba and Alejandro Balde to play at left-back. And because the Spaniards initially turned down an offer from the Blues for Aubameyang, he was locked in amid the ensuing swap deal talks for some time.
Marcos Alonso’s contract with Barcelona
Since he wasn’t part of the original deal to sign Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Marcos Alonso moved to Barcelona as a free agent. However, the left-back has contributed to the Blaugrana lowering their asking price for the Gabonese striker. Although a two-year deal was discussed, Alonso ultimately didn’t commit to such a long term.
The defender was reportedly given a ‘1+1’ contract, meaning he first signed a one-year contract. After the first season, the contract has the option of being renewed for another year depending on his performance. Therefore, if the 31-year-old fails to live up to expectations at Camp Nou, it’s possible his return to Spain will be cut short.
How much will Marcos Alonso earn per week?
Alonso’s salary at Stamford Bridge was £100,000 (€127,000) a week or £5.2m (€6m) a year, although Barcelona’s financial situation certainly forced him to accept a cut salary, according to Daily mail. Spanish journalist Gerard Romero has published more precise figures, claiming the defender will now bring home 3 million euros per year.
Considering this, Marcos Alonso would earn around €250,000 per month or €58,000 a week in Barcelona. It would almost €11,500 a day or so €1,500 per hour, or 62 € per minute.
