Manchester City To Sell Kelechi Iheanacho For £20 million

Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho will be sold to Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
Iheanacho is one of the members of manager Pep Guardiola’s summer clearout at the club, with the club willing to listen to offers for the 20-year-old Nigerian.

Dortmund has already expressed an interest in the young forward who has scored 21 goals for City despite making only 20 starts.

Since coming of Guardiola, however, Iheanacho’s progress has been restricted by the £27million signing of young Brazilian international centre-forward Gabriel Jesus and there is an acceptance he could move on.

Though some Premier League clubs are showing interest in the attacker, Dortmund are likely able to offer Champions League football next season and the chance to play with star forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang if he stays at the club.

Manchester City are likely to make a demand of close to £20million for the player they signed in 2014 from the Taye Academy in Nigeria and who is under contract until 2021.

Pablo Zabaleta has already said he will be leaving at the end of the season while Yaya Toure, Jesus Navas, Willy Caballero, Bacary Sagna and Gael Clichy are all out of contract in June.

Joe Hart, Eliaquim Mangala, Samir Nasri, Wilfried Bony and Jason Denayer were all sent on loan this season and unlikely to figure in Guardiola’s future plans.
