“My career is coming to an end. I don’t know if it will be one year or two. It will be less than three years,” he said.
“I’ve been playing for passion, but now I’m playing for money. At the end of the day, it’s about money,” he said.
“Cristiano Ronaldo has earned 100 times more money than I have earned in my entire life. Yet, he went to the Saudi Arabian league. Is it passion? No, it’s about money.”
The Saudi League is a popular destination for superstars to finish their careers. The standard is higher than before, and the salaries are generous.
It started with Al Nasr’s signing of Cristiano Ronaldo. The superstar effect was huge, and it opened the eyes of other players.
The superstar arrivals have increased in recent years, with the likes of Karim Benzema, N’Golo Kante, Leo Neves, Kalidou Koulibaly, Edouard Mendy, Fabinho, and Sadio Mane forming an ultra-luxury squad.
Ighalo burst onto the Saudi scene with Al Shabab after spells at Watford and Manchester United.
He then continued his career at Al Hilal and when his contract expired, he looked for a new destination. He has remained in Saudi Arabia and will join Al Wehda.
