Zidane left Real Madrid with 24 million euros on the table

Zinedine Zidane walked away from Real Madrid this summer and gave up the 24 million euros left on his two-year contract.

Zidane continues on vacation with his family, as shown through his social networks and that of his children.

The Frenchman has decided to move away from the day to day grind of football. He wanted to disconnect and recover strength, he felt it was time to hit the brakes and think about other things.

In the end, he has shown his little care for the money, as he gave up 6 million after tax as a player and now 12 million for each of the seasons he had signed.

It is his philosophy of life, and when he saw that the conditions around him were not the best, he decided to end his time as coach of Los Blancos after two and a half seasons.

Zidane anticipated problems. He knew about the Cristiano Ronaldo case in detail, since he was informed.

The Frenchman thought that the dressing room needed a change at all levels, but his commitment to some of the players prevented him from leading that change, which is now testing Madrid.

For a whole day, Florentino Perez tried to convince the Frenchman to reconsider, to turn his back and agree to continue, at least, one more season, but the decision was firm and there was no way that the president of Madrid and Jose Angel Sanchez could help him change his mind.

It was a thoughtful decision and apart from the 24 million euros left on the table.

His idea was and still is to get away a bit from competitive football and not commit to any club. He wants to take his time before returning and as he has shown, money does not matter.
