However, the publication added there are not expected stumbling blocks to the veteran striker signing the deal given his old club forwarded one of the most lucrative offers in their history.

The Sun reports the five-time Ballon d’Or winner is set to pocket a massive £480,000-a-week (about N272m) or around £25millon a year (over N14bn).
