Zidane’s transfer fee in 2001 equates to one in the region of 75 million euros, while he has now earned the club 109.4m euros in just 18 months as coach.
The income comes directly from the side’s triumphs under his guidance, primarily from the Champions League victories, as the Spanish federation does not directly offer financial benefits for success.

During the time the Frenchman was in charge in the 2015/16 Champions League, the club took in 29.5m euros, whereas after a whole European campaign last season the club brought in 54.2m, taking into account their UEFA Super Cup victories and the upcoming money from the Club World Cup.
This season, Zidane could push the earnings up to double the fee that was paid for him.
He has already proven in his coaching career, as he did in his playing days, that he was well worth the money the club spent to sign him from Juventus.
