How much is Samuel Chukwueze’s salary at AC Milan?

Samuel Chukwueze's rise has been as meteoric as it has been eye-catching. The Nigeria international has gone from playing academy football in his homeland to lining up for one of the biggest teams in Italy within the space of six years.

Chukwueze’s talent was first noticed when he joined Villarreal’s B team and it was only a matter of time before he was promoted to the senior side.

Once he made that step, though, he never looked back and helped the Yellow Submarines win the Europa League in 2021, having topped the assist charts in the competition.

The 24-year-old’s fine performances in Spain subsequently earned him a dream move to AC Milan for an initial fee of €20 million plus a further €8 million in add-ons. The transfer also came with huge financial gain, as the winger's gross salary was set at €6.5 million per year, according to Football Italia.

How much is Chukwueze's weekly salary?

Chukwueze’s net salary is, however, estimated to be around €5 million per year. This translates as just over €104,000 per week for the skillfull Nigerian winger.

The Milan star’s weekly earnings make him one of the highest-paid Nigerian footballers at the moment, with only Victor Osimhen ($20 million) and Alex Iwobi ($7.5 million) currently earning more than him.

How much is Chukwueze salary in naira?

Chukwueze’s salary, when converted to Naira, the official currency in Nigeria, is over six billion naira. His gross salary of €6.5 million per year translates to N6,443,322,288.

What charity work does Samuel Chukwueze do?

Chukwueze earns a lot of money from his football career but he also shares a very strong bond with the people from where he comes from and usually donates to them.

He has often visited the children and staff of Casa Ronald Charity to present gifts. He also has a foundation—the Samuel Chukwueze Foundation—which aims to empower less-privileged kids to achieve their dreams.
