- Odion Igahlo is set to become one of the highest paid players in the world after another mout-watering offer
- But his £400-per-week offer to quit Man United in the summer will not put him in the league of the most paid earners in football
- The top five earners include Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Neymar, Gareth Bale and Antoine Griezmann
Odion Ighalo's mouth-watering offer from Chinese Super League side Shanghai Shenhua will not rank him into the top 10 highest earners in the round leather game.
The Nigerian striker who signed a six-month loan deal which is due to expire on June 30, has been offered an additional £100,000 from the Chinese club to shun a permanent move to Old Trafford.
Ighalo is facing the prospect of earning £20.8million before tax but it will not match some big earners despite the staggering figures.
In a list released by France Football, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo top the chart with a yearly income of £120m and £109m respectively.
Paris saint-German striker Neymar is in third as he pockets £87m annually while Real Madrid's Gareth Bale is in fourth with a take-home of £35.45m.
Barcelona striker Antoine Griezmann is fifth with £35.25m earning while Eden Hazard is in sixth with a massive £32.06m.
Evergreen Andreas Iniesta is making a whole lot despite plating the J-League with a yearly salary of £31.14m
Raheem Sterling is eighth with £30.96m at Man City while Bayern Munich's Robert Lewandowski is ninth with £26.56m. PSG’s Kylian Mbappe completes the top ten with £24.73m.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Eden Hazard has admitted that he has not lived up to his billing at RealMadrid after his £150million move from Chelsea last summer, cited on Marca.
The 29-year-old has been hit with several injury problems which restricted him to just one goal in 15 appearances in all competitions.
Hazard suffered another knock on February 22, 2020, against Levante in La Liga which has resulted into conducting surgery on his ankle and could be ruled out of the entire season.
But the Belgium international is looking towards the next season as he believes things would get better for him at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Legit.ng also reported that Cristiano Ronaldo has been criticized for breaking Juventus quarantine after posting several pictures of himself in the swimming pool during the Coronavirus pandemic, Daily Mail.
The 35-year-old returned to his homeland in Madeira at the end of February to visit his mum who suffered a stroke.
But the Bianconeri striker has not returned to Italy due to the outbreak of COVID-19 that spread across Europe and around the world.
