Golden Eaglets striker Isaac Success has agreed to a record- breaking four- year deal worth €1.4 million with Serie A side Udinese.
The deal was said to have been brokered by a France- based FIFA agent. A top source who was part of the deal disclosed that the striker will be sent to Spanish La Liga side Granada on loan to gain experience and playing time.
“Udinese have signed Success on a four- year deal. It’s a great deal for both club and the player,” the source told MTNFootball.com.
The deal will see the Serie A club splash out a transfer fee of €400,000 to the young striker’s youth club in Benin City, while he will earn an annual wage of €250,000 for the next four years.
Success’ deal is believed to be a massive transfer coup as Udinese has thus beaten bigger clubs like Manchester City, Lille and Benfica to the talented striker.
Udinese are yet to confirm the capture of the top scorer at the recently concluded African Youth Championship in Morocco where he scored seven goals.
