Despite only making just eight appearances for Manchester United , Nigeria international , Odion Ighalo , has been rewarded with a hefty bonus of £ 92 , 000 (approximately N 39m ), 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 .
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 . ”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’ s men are currently fifth in the table , three points behind fourth-placed Chelsea , who occupy the final UCL spot.
Ighalo and his teammates have not played since their 2 – 0 victory over rivals Manchester City on March 8 due to the coronavirus outbreak , but the Premier League hopes to resume games in May and complete the season.
