Former Ghana captain Asamoah Gyan is reported to have earned nearly £3 million for every goal he scored during his time at Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG.
The 36-year-old moved to China after spending three fruitful years in the United Arab Emirates, where he lined up for Al Ain.
According to a report by UK portal Daily Star, Gyan earned nearly £3million per goal during his two years with the Chinese club.
The Ghanaian is, therefore, reported to have made £23.6 million (£2.95 million per goal) from the eight goals he scored for Shanghai SIPG.
Gyan remains one of the richest players in Africa despite struggling with niggling injuries in the last three and a half years.
