Ighalo To Become Africa’s Highest Paid Footballer Ever As Chinese Club Offers Him £400,000 (N190m) Per Week
Nigerian footballer, Odion Ighalo is set to become the highest-paid African Footballer.
The Chinese club, Shanghai Shenhua, which rejected the skipper’s Manchester United’s loan extension offer is now offering the sum of £400,000 (N190m) per week.
Shanghai Shenhua are breaking the bank to keep the experienced Nigerian with some reports even claiming he’s set to return to the club by next week.
Ighalo is a lifelong United fan who took a massive pay cut to play for the club. He’s living the dream.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was said to be keen on holding onto him in case the Premier League restarts but Shanghai Shenhua seemingly didn’t want to negotiate such a deal as they look to having the talented striker back for the resumption of their own league and in order to secure his future they’ve made a massive offer.

The Nigerian football star holds his Nigerian heritage in high esteem as he extends his fortune to the less privileged in his home country.
Odion Ighalo spent £1 million on purchasing land and the building of houses for kids in his orphanage. He pays their school fees, funds their feeding, gives them football training, free kits, and more.
He also financially supports hundreds of widows.
