Obafemi Martins Hits Goldmine in China


Super Eagles forward, Obafemi Martins, whose transfer to Shanghai Greenland Shenhua from the Seattle Sounders has been completed will earn more than double his earnings playing in the free-spending Chinese league, according to reports.

Martins was on $3 million a year at Major League Soccer side Seattle Sounders, but after he has paid tax, he took home about $2 million.

The experienced striker hit a gold mine in China as he will earn $6.6 million at the club for the 2016 season, according to Steve Goff of the Washington Post.

The Chinese club also paid Seattle $2 million for his transfer.

‘Oba’, as he is called in the USA, has since joined his new club in pre-season training ahead of the new season in China.
