An overview of all contracted Beşiktaş players

Updated: July 11, 2017

The following is an overview of all the contracted first team Besiktas players, the durations of their contracts and how much they earn in guaranteed wages (on average) until the end of their contract durations.

If a player makes €1,7m this season and €1,8m the next, it will be shown as €1,75m. This is the case for certain players, others just have a flat wage that doesn’t go up or down.

Youth players who were only sporadically included in the squad (i.g. Fatih Aksoy, Muhammed Enes, etc.) are not included in the list.

Apart from Aras Özbiliz all these wages are confirmed by the club although they did not give out official information on the conditions of Ricardo Quaresma and Tolga Zengin’s contract extentions. For Quaresma we went with the widely reported €2,3m pa in the media, while for Tolga we stuck witht he €1,3m pa of his final year of contract from his original deal.

For the new contracts players generally have a €4.000 per point bonus, while older contracts (pre-dating 2016) will have a €10.000 per appearance bonus.
