Ighalo earns N39m bonus after first eight games

Despite only making just eight appearances for Manchester United, Nigeria international, Odion Ighalo, has been rewarded with a hefty bonus of £92,000 (approximately N39m), excluding his weekly £120,000 wages.

Since joining the Red Devils on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in the January transfer window, the 30-year-old has been a revelation, scoring four goals in eight matches.

To make up for the pay-cut, United inserted some incentives in his deal, which includes an £8,000 per-goal reward, £9,000 for every Premier League win and £3,000 for a draw.

With four goals already scored, Ighalo has bagged £32,000 goal bonus.

The ex-Watford forward also gets £9,000 for every Premier League win and Ighalo has helped the Red Devils to six victories and two draws, which sums up to £60,000.

SunSport revealed that Ighalo will also get a hefty lump of cash for helping Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side into the Champions League.
