7. Zinedine Zidane: €12m
The Frenchman pocketed a big pay rise when he returned to Real Madrid in March 2019.
Los Blancos direly needed his services once again after crashing out of the Champions League and Copa del Rey in humiliating fashion. Therefore, they didn’t hesitate in offering Zidane a more lucrative deal.
And while things got off to a shaky start, Zidane has seemingly worked his magic in Madrid once again.
The Spanish giants are back challenging for a La Liga title this season and recently won the Super Cup.
So it’s a no brainer really to see Zidane among the highest-paid football managers in 2020.
