Drenthe, 33, joined Real Madrid from Feyenoord in 2007 in a transfer which cost Los Blancos £12.6m, as per Transfermarkt.
The once pacey attacker featured in 65 matches in all competitions for Real Madrid, but only managed to score four and set five up during his four-year spell.
In an attempt to reignite his career, Drenthe joined Premier League club Everton on a season-long loan where he went on to be directly involved in 11 goals in 27 matches.
However, with the Toffees failing to try and make Drenthe’s move a permanent one, the Dutch winger eventually returned to the Santiago Bernabéu before leaving for free in 2013.
Despite initially retiring at just 29-years-old, Drenthe made a comeback and now currently plays for Dutch third tier side Kozakken Boys.
A shock report has emerged from Spanish outlet Marca who claim that the once exciting attacker has now been declared bankrupt by the District Court of Zeeland-West-Brabant.
Drenthe is quoted in the report as saying that he is “not easily scared by such things” as an accountant continues to control the assets of the Dutchman.
