Ighalo breaks ex-Chelsea star, Victor Moses’ record after joining new club

Odion Ighalo, the Super Eagles striker, smashed former Chelsea player Victor Moses’ transfer record by joining Al Hilal from Al Shabab for €5.9 million (approximately NGN2.7 billion) on Saturday.

With his transfer to Al Hilal, Ighalo has broken the previous record of Moses, another player beyond 30 who moved to Spartak Moscow from Chelsea for €5 million in the summer of 2021.
