A full breakdown of Odion Ighalo’s wages and bonuses at Manchester United shows the staggering figures he has been earning at Old Trafford.
He has scored four goals for United since joining on loan from Shanghai Shenhua in January – earning him a whopping £32,000 in bonuses.
The Nigerian left China to return to England in the winter transfer window, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer securing a last-ditch deal to bring him to Old Trafford.
Many felt it was a panic buy from the United boss, who was in need of an attacking recruit after losing Marcus Rashford to long-term injury, but Ighalo has silenced the doubters by getting off to an impressive start.
He has netted four goals in eight appearances so far, including a brace in their 3-0 FA Cup win away at Derby earlier this month.
And according to The Sun, Ighalo has raked in an extra £32,000 on top of his £180,000-a-week United wages in goal bonuses.
The 30-year-old is pocketing £8,000 for every goal he scores at the club, which is one of several incentives included in his contract.
He also receives around £9,000 for every Premier League win United manage to get while he’s in the squad.
There is even a £3,000 bonus for when Solskjaer’s men are held to a draw.
That means he has already collected £30,000 in total, taking his combined bonuses to a stunning £62,000 already.
It is also believed that Ighalo will earn even more extra cash if United qualify for next season’s 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.”
United have previously paid around £15,000 per goal to the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Alexis Sanchez.
Ighalo’s current Shanghai contract runs until New Year’s Eve 2021, but United have the option to buy him outright in the next transfer window.
And the player is reportedly prepared to take a £6m hit in wages to turn his temporary Old Trafford switch into a permanent one.
