Just invited to the Super Eagles team, Manchester City forward Kelechi Iheanacho has revealed that he was close to signing for FC Porto.
“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.
