“I was close to signing for FC Porto, where I really wanted to go,” Iheanacho said to express.co.uk.

“But my agent said City was a much better prospect and my father told me I should join City because I would have a much better future here. So that’s what I did.

“Nobody knows what will happen but because City are such a big team with so many fantastic players I didn’t believe I’d have a future here.”

Kelechi Iheanacho scored a goal and gavetwo assists, and also won man-of-the-match award for Manchester City in 5-1 thrashing of Crystal Palace in the Capital One Cup.
