Written by Morenike Adebayo on August 31, 2016
Manchester City starlet, Kelechi Iheanacho, is now the highest-earning Nigerian player in the Premier League, after agreeing a eighty-five thousand pounds-per-week deal with the club.
Iheanacho has 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 nineteen-year-old now earns more than Super Eagles captain, Mikel John Obi, who picks up seventy thousand pounds-a week at Chelsea. Victor Moses is paid fifty thousand pounds-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.
