Italian side Udinese have signed Golden Eaglets striker Isaac Success on a record-breaking four-year deal worth 1.4 million Euros, MTNFootball.com has scooped.
The 17-year-old, who terrorized Ghana’s defenders at the recent Africa U17 Championship will see the Serie A club splash out a transfer fee of 400,000 Euros.
The deal, which was brokered by a France-based FIFA agent, will see the young striker earn 250,000 Euros a year for the next four years.
A top source who was part of the deal told MTNFootball.com: “Udinese have signed Success on a four-year deal. It’s a great deal for both the club and the player.”
He will join Ghanaian star Emmanuel Agyemang Badu but Success will be sent to Spanish La Liga side Granada on loan to gain experience and playing time.
Udinese are believed to have shares in Granada and another Nigeria striker Odion Ighalo has been playing on loan in Spain from the Italian club.
This is believed to be a massive transfer coup as Udinese have thus beaten bigger clubs like Manchester City, Lille and Benfica to the promising centre-forward.
Udinese though are yet to announce the capture of the young striker, who was top scorer at the recently concluded African U17 Championship in Morocco where he scored seven goals as Nigeria reached the final.
