Nigerian footballer and star of the Super Eagles team at the 2018 World Cup, Ahmed Musa, is set to be the highest paid Nigerian footballer as he is set to join Saudi Arabia team, Al-Nassr, on deal that could rise to about £25m.
The Super Eagles forward, 25, has joined Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nassr on a four-year deal from Leicester City. Al-Nassr announced this morning that he had signed a four-year contract but did not disclose the transfer fee.
According to unconfirmed reports, Leicester City received a fee of £14.8m with several add-ons, which will see the deal rise to as high as £25m. The deal is expected to make him the highest-paid Nigerian footballer when the transfer fee is revealed.
The Super Eagles forward was the Foxes’ record signing when he moved to the King Power for £16.6million in 2016, but struggled for playing time and was loaned back to his old club CSKA Moscow for part of last season.
