Real Madrid is one of the biggest and most important clubs in the world, for many the most. Therefore, the demands that surround them season after season are none other than to win every title possible, something that is no longer an option this season, as they were eliminated from the Copa del Rey. However, they remain as leaders of La Liga and are also in the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League, where they must face Manchester City.

But one factor that has worked against Carlo Ancelotti's team this season has been injuries. Even before the start of the season, it became known that Thibaut Courtois would miss several months due to a ruptured ACL in his left knee and that forced the Merengue team to urgently look for a goalkeeper in the transfer market.

One way or another, Ancelotti has managed to fill the gap left by Courtois and both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Andriy Lunin have lived up to expectations. Everything seemed to be going well with the Belgian goalkeeper's recovery, as he was already training and was even expected to return to the pitch before the end of the season, as media such as Diario AS reported that it was estimated that he could play on March 31 against Athletic.

However, bad news for Real Madrid has been confirmed, as Thibaut Courtois has suffered another injury, this time in his right knee. He has torn his meniscus and it is reported that he will be out for another 6 to 7 weeks, which means he is practically ruled out for the rest of the season, one in which he has not been able to play a single game and that represents a tremendous economic loss for the Spanish club.

How much does Real Madrid lose with Thibaut Courtois' injury?

Thibaut Courtois is one of Real Madrid's highest paid players, as he has an annual salary of $16.7 million, this according to the portal Salary Sport. This is the amount that Real Madrid "wasted" this season on the Belgian goalkeeper, because as already mentioned, it is very likely that he will not be able to play a single game this season.
