Highest Paid Footballer in Nigeria

05.03.2015 82374

Let’s take a look at the priciest Nigerian footballers – the ones you hear about every day and some relatively new names. We will be moving towards the highest paid footballers, and start with a relatively small amount of £1 million a year.

Super Eagles midfielder, Kalu Uche, is the first one on our list, making £1.04m a year. He showed himself being a desired footballer back in 2012, when he got £630,000 – half of his transfer fee to Kasimpasa, Turkey, from Espanyol. This was made according to the previous agreement he had with the Espanyol club, made on his free transfer from Swiss club Neuchatal Xamas.
