The
former Watford striker took a pay cut of 40 per cent on his mega
£300,000-a-week contract with Shanghai Shenhua to move to Old Trafford
in January.

Ighalo was so desperate to join United, the team
he supported as a boy in Nigeria, that he was willing to see his salary
noticeably reduced.

However, he has already started to make
up the deficit after a number of lucrative bonuses were included in his
deal with the Red Devils.

According to The Sun, Ighalo
pockets £8,000 for every goal he scores and £9,000 for each Premier
League win United pick up when he’s part of the matchday squad.

He
has already scored four times since arriving in January – twice in the
FA Cup and twice in the Europa League – to earn himself £32,000.

And
after appearing off the bench in three top-flight victories and a draw
against Everton worth £3,000, Ighalo has added another £30,000 to his
bonus total.

There is no bonus for a defeat, but the
30-year-old is reportedly in line for a sizeable payment if he helps
United finish in a Champions League position.

Ole Gunnar
Solskjaer’s men are currently fifth in the table, three points behind
fourth-placed Chelsea who occupy the final spot.

Ighalo and
his team-mates have not played since their 2-0 victory over rivals
Manchester City on March 8 due to the coronavirus crisis, but the
Premier League hope to resume games in May and complete the season.
