Super Eagles striker, Emmanuel Emenike, will pocket a whooping 3.7 million Euros (more than 925 million Naira) for his season-long loan at Al Ain of Dubai, africanFootball.com reports.
A top source close to the Eagles told africanFootball.com this latest move could well secure the future of the Super Eagles star, who still dreams of playing in England before he quits the game.
“I have come across various figures that Emenike will be paid for moving to Al Ain, but they do not come close to what he will really get,” the source said.
“He will pocket a staggering 3.7 million Euros for the time he will be on loan in Dubai.”
According to the source, it was Fenerbache who insisted on extending Emenike’s contract by a year because the team officials still believe they could still benefit from his next transfer rather than let him leave as a free agent.
Emenike is a direct replacement for Ghanaian skipper Asamoah Gyan, who has also taken up a very lucrative offer in China.
He has been handed jersey No 9 and will travel with the rest of the squad to Austria for pre-season training.
