On loan Manchester United striker Odion Ighalo earns an extra £8,000 every time he scores for Manchester United, so it's no wonder he's banging in wonder strikes for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's team.
Ighalo was a surprise signing in January on the last day of the winter window, with United desperate to add a striker after the injury to Marcus Rashford, and was pretty widely mocked.
However already he's £32,000 up with his move thanks to the bouses in his contact, accord to the Mirror. As well as banking £8,000 for every goal the 30-year-old also earns £9,000 per Premier League win he's involved in and £3,000 for a draw.
Ighalo was reportedly earning £300,000-a-week playing in the Chinese Super League for Shanghai Greenland Shenhua but he's had to take a pay cut to play for United.
According to reports that cut was as much as 40 per cent to play for his childhood team but if he helps lead them into next season's Champions League then he'll get another big bonus.
However the former Watford striker's future is in doubt because of the current delay in the season. At the moment he is due to go back to China in June but the season won't currently restart till at least April 30th.

As well as his loan deal expiring before what will now be the end of the season, should it ever end, Ighalo may also have more competition for places if there is more football.
The gap in the season likely gives time for Marcus Rashford to recover from his injury and play some part in the Red Devils push to finish inside the top four.
Speaking recently about his move to Old Trafford Ighalo said, "It still feels like a dream sometimes. But I don't want to get carried away with too much emotion so that I am able to concentrate on training well and playing well. I know I am playing for the biggest club in the world."
How much more money will he earn in bonuses?
