Coach of Manchester City Pep Guardiola will host the senior national team coach of Nigeria, Gernot Rohr, later in the week to discuss the future of Kelechi Iheanacho at Manchester City.
Linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium, Iheanacho is one of the players the Franco-German coach of the Super Eagles is counting on ahead of Nigeria’s World Cup 2018 Qualifiers tie against Cameroon.
Rohr will like to know the prospect of playing time for the 20 year old if he remains at Man City at the end of the current transfer window, or if a move to one of the teams pushing for his signature will be beneficial for his career.
Already Leicester City are reportedly the bookmakers favourite to land the forward but West Ham are yet to give up on their chances, and report has it that they have agreed City’s option of a buy back clause in the deal for Iheanacho.
However as exclusively explained by this portal, Guardiola will sanction the exit of Iheanacho only If he identifies a replacement in the striking department of the team with Nolito impending department leaving them short of options upfront.
