After reportedly being transfer listed by Anderlecht manager Vincent Kompany, the staggering wage of former Kaizer Chiefs star Knowledge Musona has now been revealed.

Musona, 29, has featured just eight times in the Belgian Pro League since his lucrative switch to 34-time league champions in July 2018 and he's now believed to be considered surplus to requirements.

Having signed the Zimbabwe captain amongst a host of high-profile names to challenge for the league title, the club is said to be heading into a new direction with a youth-based approach once again, which served them with success in the past.

And Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad compiled the list of their highest-earners, with several underperforming stars now heading towards the exit door in the off-season.

According to the publication, Musona walks home with €950 000 (R18.85-million) per year, before bonuses, which ranked him amongst the top-five best paid at the most successful club in Belgium.

This would mean Musona will walk home with an estimated €20 000 (R400 000) per week until he finds a new club.
