Victor Boniface Background

Victor Boniface is a 23-year-old Nigerian footballer that plays as a striker for German Bundesliga side Bayer Leverkusen at the club level and the Super Eagles of Nigeria at the international level.

The Nigeria international is known for his dribbling, work rate, strength, playmaking and goalscoring abilities.

After impressing at Norwegian club Bodø/Glimt, winning the Eliteserien back-to-back in 2020 and 2021, Boniface sealed a transfer to Belgian club Union St Gilloise.

His impressive stint in Belgium saw him seal a transfer to Bundesliga club, Bayer Leverkusen for a record deal.

While specific financial details of the deal were not  disclosed by Leverkusen, Union SG reportedly agreed to the transfer for a guaranteed fee of €20 million, along with €7.5 million in add-ons and various clauses. 

Boniface’s Leverkusen deal  also set a new record for Union SG as the most expensive sale in their history, easily surpassing the €7 million they received from Club Brugge in exchange for Casper Nielsen in 2022.

Since then, Victor Boniface has enjoyed an explosive start to life in Germany, helping Xabi Alonso’s side end their 120-year wait for a Bundesliga title in a phenomenal debut season.
