Agent confirms £16m Leicester man could join Turkish giants

The agent of Leicester City forward Ahmed Musa has claimed there is a “50% chance” of the 25-year-old joining Galatasaray this summer.

Musa spent the second half of last season on loan at CSKA Moscow after struggling for game time in Leicester, and rediscovered his best form as he notched six goals in 10 games.

The £16million Nigeria forward’s future at the King Power Stadium is in doubt, and his agent has confirmed that a move to Turkey is a strong possibility.

William D’avila told Turkish radio station Radyospor: “We are in talks with Galatasaray, they have made an offer and want Ahmed.

“The transfer is a possibility, Galatasaray are a big club and will compete in the Champions League next season.

“Musa has offers from other clubs but he’s keen on playing for Galatasaray. We are currently working on a loan deal with an option to buy. He’ll make a decision soon. I think we can say there’s a 50% chance of Musa joining the club.”

Musa immediately impressed after joining Leicester for a then-club record fee in 2016, scoring a brace in a friendly against Barcelona, but he only managed two Premier League goals in his first season. He didn’t make a single top flight appearance last year before leaving for Russia.

Musa is currently with the Nigeria squad for the World Cup, and is the country’s joint-sixth most capped player of all-time.
