On the back of a wonderful season with Villarreal, Samuel Chukwueze shared a photo of himself chilling in a private jet.
The Nigerian helped his side qualify for the Europa League next season. He contributed three goals as well as two assists for the Yellow Submarines. His dribbling and flair was a joy to watch throughout the campaign.
Eight big chances created which were only bettered amongst his colleagues by Santi Cazorla and Gerard Moreno also highlight his underlying creative ability and it shouldn’t be long before a bigger club comes knocking on his door.
But for now, he’s focused on Villarreal as he takes a little time off ahead of the expected resumption of football in September. While taking a well-deserved rest, he posted a photo chilling in a private jet with a shout-out to Victor Osimhen.
A star at the U-17 World Cup in Chile
Chukwueze, alongside Osimhen and Nwakali, ran riot for Nigeria at the 2015 U-17 World Cup in Chile. The Golden Eaglets ended up as eventual champions, defeating Mali in the final. Chukwueze scored three goals and supplied two assists in his six appearances.
Life at Villarreal
Stellar campaigns in Chile saw the trio make big moves to European teams. Although, they have all enjoyed varying levels of success since their transfers. Chukwueze moved to Villarreal B from Diamond Academy for half a million Euros and was promoted to the first team last season.
He has impressed since his debut and undoubtedly has a big future ahead of him. Jaw-dropping performances versus Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona is evidence that he’s on the way to the top. In October 2019, he signed a bumper deal with a release clause of €100m.
Salary and Net worth
He currently earns €18,000 per week which sums up to just under €1m annually. He is also signed to Roc Nation Sports just like a couple of notable stars including Lukaku and the Ball brothers. His net worth is well above $100k so he is expected to be able to afford a fair share of luxury.
