In August 2018 the midfielder signed a contract with Borussia Dortmund that nets him a whopping salary of 8 Million Euro (6.8 Million Pound) per year. We have crunched the numbers, this means he earns €21,917.81 (£18,630.13) per day and €913.24 (£776.26) per hour!

This means the average man needs to work for at least 18.88 years to earn the same as Chaloupe earns in only 1 month.
Net Worth & Market Value

He's a player who knows his merit, and his contracts have been reflective of his worth to his teams. His net worth is estimated to be around 30 Million Euros, and his current market value is at 32 Million Euros.
The defensive midfielder is in action for Dortmund. He has ink on both his arms. We would like to get a closer look at those tattoos.
Seen holidaying with his wife, we notice a massive chain tattooed on his neck/chest area. There's a cross at the end of that chain. It is surrounded by what appears like wings.
Family - Get to know them
Sister - Whitney
She's clearly wearing a maternity dress, and it looks unflattering. It was reported that birds mistook his hair for a bush and were looking for their nests up there.
Witsel Car - What does he drive?
The "Cady" is not a very popular car among footballers. He's one of a kind, this boy.
House - Where does he live?
Location: Tongeren, Belgium
He bought this house so that he could be closer to his father, whilst in Belgium.
Location: Tongeren, Belgium
It set him back by 1.3 Million Euros, and it looks stunning both on the inside and the out.
Chaloupe's career has been somewhat of a mystery to us. He has done what no other player, European at least, has ever done before. We feel like his career has been in reverse, because nobody does things like playing in the Chinese Super League for Tianjin Tianhai F.C. during their prime years.
He moved there from Zenit Saint Petersburg, and that's a decision that we can understand to an extent. Russia is a tough place to be in, but Zenit is a team that constantly does well in the Russian domestic league. They're a relatively known team in European competitions as well. He spent five years with them and made over 100 appearances for the club.
This BVB player started playing for Standard Liège's senior team as a 17-year-old in 2006. He would represent them for five seasons, and even became a crucial member of the squad. He's currently known as a wonderful tackler and someone that goes into challenges without hesitation but that aspect didn't come easily. He had to go through a tough period during the early days, because one such tackle ended up breaking another player's leg in the Belgian league. He learned his lesson and quickly adopted this very demanding technique into his game, which is why Dortmund spent 20 Million Euros on him in 2018. Benfica were also the benefactors of his service, albeit for just the 2011-12 season.
He plays for Belgium at the international stage and is a crucial member of the squad, and has also represented their youth teams at every possible level.
