Let’s take a seem look on the priciest Nigerian footballers – those you hear about everyday and a few relatively new names. we can be moving closer to the absolute best paid footballers, and begin with a moderately small quantity of £1 million a yr.

super Eagles midfielder, Kalu Uche, is the first person on our list, making at least £1.04m a 12 months. He showed himself being a desired and great footballer back in 2012, when he obtained £630,000 – 1/2 (i.e half) of his transfer price to Kasimpasa, Turkey, from Espanyol in Spain. This was once made according to the prior agreement he had with the Espanyol membership club, made on his free transfer from Swiss membership Neuchatal Xamas.

With an annual wage of virtually £2 million pounds, Joseph Yobo is likely one of the most seen avid players on the list. he's identified to have earmark this amount at least twice, at Everton the place he was once paid an incomes of £1,974,000 for 12 months, and then as he was transferred to Fenerbahce he started with an incomes of around £1.8m, which was once much more as he didn't have to pay 35% taxes anymore.

The participant that could have made it to the highest of the record and appeared at its mere starting is Victor Moses. Having won virtually £9 million at becoming a member of Chelsea, Moses sadly had to transfer ahead and joined Liverpool on much smaller earnings, of fifty five thousand pounds per week (£55,000) Making it a total of £2.5 a year.

nevertheless, John Utaka denied all of the rumors of earning £80,000 per week (£three.6 million a 12 months) at Portsmouth when the club used to be in financial problem, we nonetheless dared to say this quantity in our record. The footballer insists on being paid just £30,000 per week at the club, which is greater than two occasions not up to what used to be rumored. In 2011 he joined Montpellier in a contract for 5 years for £40,000 every week, which appears to verify that the rumors weren't proper.

In 2012-2013 football seasons, John Mikel Obi was the best possible paid Nigerian footballer with a yearly earnings of £4 million in 12 months. The Midfielder with the Chelsea having signed a 5-year contract in 2012. previous to that, his earnings was now a roughly £2.6 million in 12 months. according to the tax legal guidelines of the united kingdom, nevertheless, his paycheck gets cut rather somewhat, still he's among one of the most best possible paid players from Nigeria.
Mikel Obi is 27, and he's definite to enjoy several years of his career ahead of him. nonetheless, football is just not his best supply of income, as he is an enormous investor in actual property and purchased a few mansions in Lagos, Jos and London, complete valued is approximately at four million pounds a year, as well as a shareholder in several prime reputable companies.

Obafemi Martins, the forward of Levante of Spain, is famous for having performed for different prime clubs like Birmingham city of England, Inter-Milan of Italy, Vfl Wolfsburg of Germany and Newcastle United of England and is now taking part in for Seattle Sounders in the U.S.. There he grew to be the very best paid player with a income of £4,437,446 a year.
at the second thought the player if 28, he owns 2 mansions in Lagos (Victoria Garden city) with a complete valued at of N500m, additionally to a fine apartment in Como, Italy, priced N800m, and a couple of prime lodges in Italy. He additionally donates to charity, and his latest contribution was over N400m.

one other footballer from Nigeria - Yakubu Aiyegbeni, topped Mikel’s earning via scoring slightly over £5.4 million a year with a transfer to Guangzhou club, China. Being a very international star, there is not any surprise that Yakubu Aiyegbeni made it to this list. His up to date transfer to China’s membership Guangzhou earned him a best quantity of one hundred thousand pounds weekly. He had simply joined a Qatari club side for an undisclosed amount, and we must ordinarily guess the quantity used to be not less than that.

on the prime of our record is a 26-year old historical footballer – Brown Ideye. tremendous Super Eagles forward was once not too long ago purchased for £10m switch cost by means of West Bromwich Albion from Dynamo Kiev, Ukraine. An aspriring Nigerian footballer started out his career with the aid of winning the Nigerian most advantageous League (The Nigerian Premier League) at Ocean Boys. After that he went to Europe and his fee started quickly going up transfer after transfer. He joined Dynamo Kiev in 2011 for £7m after being transferred from Sochaux for £4m.
