Super Eagles winger Michael Babatunde will earn a whooping 1.8m euros at his new club, Raja Casablanca, elevating him into the elite earners in Moroccan football, Completesportsnigeria.com has exclusively gathered.
The Nigeria international who completed his move to the Green Devils on Wednesday after successfully passing medicals, will earn approximately 52,000 euros monthly at the club aside bonuses, the player's close confidant revealed to Completesportsnigeria.com.
"Michael signed a good deal at Raja far better that what some European teams offered," Completesportsnigeria.com's source disclosed.
On why he opted to join the 11 time winners of the Morrocan league, former Dnipro star, Babatunde said it was the love of the coach, Rachid Taoussi, who lured him to the club.
“It was an easy decision,” Babatunde told Completesportsnigeria.com when asked why he opted for Raja.
“I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to work with a coach who wanted me desperately," he said.
"I look forward to the opportunity to help this team. I am excited for this new chapter of my career.”
