Any club interested in Manchester City talent Kelechi Iheanacho will have to cough out £20 Million (€24 million) before landing the prodigy, reports.
Soccerex recently rated the Nigerian as the ninth most valuable U-21 player in the world , valuing him in the region of £17 million, while he is valued at €5 million by the experts at Transfermarkt, but these two figures cannot meet his asking price.
“When Kelechi Iheanacho signed a contract with Manchester City, there was no release clause inserted into the deal because City saw him as a “minor” and didn’t know his true value, ” a source told
“But when he started playing and contract negotiations started, Man City wanted to embed £20m million into the new contract.
“Manchester City have no plans to sell Iheanacho for now, so the amount is only symbolic. ”
In the 2015-2016 season, Bournemouth, Sunderland and West Ham had approached the Citizens regarding the signing of Iheanacho on loan but the Etihad outfit refused to do business.
The 19-year-old is tied to Manchester City until June 30, 2019.
