Real Madrid enjoys good economic health. As proof of this, the ‘Blancos’ have been able to close this summer one of the most expensive signings of the market with the signing of Aurelien Tchouameni for 80 million euros.
One of the legs of this economic health of the merengue club is based on the money it has earned from transfers in recent years and Florentino Pérez and his board of directors have found an economic vein with the sale of its youth players.

The most lucrative transfer was that of Álvaro Morata, which closed at around 66 million euros to Chelsea in 2017. The Madrid-born player did not settle in the Premier League and ended up at Atletico Madrid and then on loan at Juventus. Like Morata, Marcos Llorente turned from ‘Merengue’ promise to rival when he was transferred to Atletico Madrid for 30 million euros.
Meanwhile, Achraf Hakimi follows Morata atop the list after leaving for Inter for €34 million. The Moroccan was established in Italy as one of the best fullbacks in Europe and only a year later moved to PSG for €66 million.
