- Odion Ighalo currently earns huge incentives at Man United apart from his weekly wages
- The 30-year-old has made £32,000 in bonuses so far since his January move to Old Trafford
- Ighalo has scored four goals in eight matches for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side this season
Odion Ighalo's January move to Man United has been a revelation and it has been revealed that the Nigerian striker earns £8,000 per goal, cited on The Sun.
The former Nigerian international has so far scored four goals in eight matches, with all strikes coming in the Europa League and FA Cup.
It is understood that the 30-year-old received a 40 per cent pay-cut from his £300,000 weekly wages with Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua.
But despite his six-month deal at Old Trafford, Ighalo has earned £32,000 extra on incentives owing to his performances for the Red Devils.
In every United win recorded by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's side, the former Watford striker pockets £9,000 and £3,000 for every draw.
According to British news outlet SunSport, Ighalo will also earn a huge incentive if he helps Solskjaer's side qualify into the Champions League next season.
An Old Trafford source said: “He earns his basic pay but also gets bits added on top of that to keep him ticking over.
“That includes a win and draw bonus, goals and things like winning trophies and getting into the Champions League.”
Ighalo is looking to earn himself a new deal at the Theatre of Dreams if his current six-month contract expires at the end of the season.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Wilfred Ndidi's performance for Leicester City this season has been looked away by a recent ranking to top midfielders in the world listed by 90min.
The Nigerian international is currently in his third season at the King Power Stadium and has stamped his authority as one of the best tacklers in Europe.
The 23-year-old has been named the best back-to-back best tackler in the English topflight division and this season is not any different.
Legit.ng also reported that John Mikel Obi has agreed to terminate his contract with Trabzonspor after the team went on to play a league match despite the current fear of the Coronavirus, cited on Twitter.
Most of Europe's top leagues have postponed matches until April while some countries canceled games indefinitely.
