Nigeria striker Obafemi Martins will enjoy one of his biggest pay days when he joins Chinese club Shanghai Shenhua as he will pocket twice what he was on at MLS side Seattle Sounders.

The 31-year-old Martins was on $3 million at Seattle Sounders, making him the second highest earner at the MLS club behind US international Clint Dempsey.

However, the striker paid almost half of that as taxes.

“Martins will earn between 3 and 4 million US dollars in China and this will be free of any taxes,” a source specially disclosed.

“This will be one of his biggest pay days.

“The striker is now all about the cash especially as he has got his green card in America.”

It was further gathered that the former Newcastle United star has agreed a year’s deal with Shanghai Shenhua with an option for another year.

The club finished sixth last season. (mtnfootball.com)
