Kelechi Iheanacho Overtakes Mikel As Highest Paid Nigerian Footballer

Manchester City starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho, is now the highest-earning Nigerian player in the Premier League, after agreeing a £85,000-per-week deal with the club.


Iheanacho signed a new two-year contract extension to stay at the Etihad until 2021. He admitted his new deal will “change the lives of his family”.

The 19-year-old now earns more than Super Eagles captain, Mikel John Obi, who picks up £70,000 a week at Chelsea.

Victor Moses is paid £50,000 a week at Stamford Bridge.

Iheanacho’s new agents negotiated this bumper deal, even though they are still locked in an ownership tussle with the player’s former representatives.
