Superstars Signings May Force Iheanacho City Exit

By Johnny Edward:

Completesportsnigeria.com can report today that Kelechi Iheanacho’s stay at Manchester City for the coming EPL season depends on the exit and arrivals of some players at the club, a highly placed close source has revealed.

The dethroned EPL champions have splashed £50m pounds on the acquisition of Raheem Sterling and coughed out about £9m for Aston Villa’s Fabian Delph who are expected to fill the homegrown quota at the club.

City are also rumored to be in talks with Wolfsburg playmaker Kevin De Bryne while Edin Dzeko is being linked away from the club.

But the highly placed source hinted that despite his impressive performances in the pre-season, Iheanacho’s place isn’t guaranteed yet in the squad for the EPL this season.

“His place is not confirmed yet as his stay is dependent on few ins and out.” the source told Completesportsnigeria.com.

“There are lots of experienced players at the club and if they make some more additions Iheanacho may go on loan.

“But he’s a talent that can develop at City if given a chance,” he concluded.

Iheanacho scored one goal and made an assist for City’s record signing Raheem Sterling as the Citizens defeated Roma 5-4 on penalties after regulation time ended 2-2 in an International Champions Cup clash in Melbourne, Australia. Iheanacho was on for 73 minutes.

    It is impossible to judge a players real capabilities from pre-season friendlies, although his goal against Roma was well taken.

    Kelechi needs to develop his undoubted talents by playing every week against men. Bench warming will do him no good at all.

    I dissagree, I think kelechi will be with the first team this year. He will be an important player for City in the coming seasons. I can see Dzecko and Jovetic moving on, leaving the striker positions for Aguero, Bony and Iheanacho.
