Super Eagles of Nigeria and Manchester City football club of England striker Kelechi Iheanacho has reportedly asked the management of Man City for an increase in his salary from about £10,000 per week to £200,000 per week.
The 19 year old Imo state born striker who 3 years ago was still playing for Taye Academy in Owerri, has informed the club through his agents for the bumper salary package, saying he is one of the best strikers in Europe if his goal per minute ratio is considered, also saying his 13 goals this season have been crucial for Man City’s season.
According to African Football, the striker has rejected a £50,000 per week salary offered to him by Man City and wants to be one of the best paid players at Man City, judging by his accomplishments and goal records during his short time in Man City’s first team.
“He has deserved his keep at City as he is now one of the most effective forwards in the whole of Europe when you put his game time against the number of his goals” the source told AfricanFootball.
