Nigeria international, Ahmed Musa has explained the reason behind his move to Saudi Arabia side Al Nassr from English Premier League outfit Leicester City.
Musa joined the Middle East side in a deal reportedly worth over £18m shortly after his exploits with Nigeria at the World Cup, where he scored twice in three games for Nigeria as they crash out at the group stage.
Leicester City assured him of a spot in the team this season after his struggles last season but the forward decided on a big money move to Saudi Arabia leading to talks about him putting money ahead of his career.
However the former Kano Pillars man told Owngoalnigeria.com, that the decision to sell him to Al Nassr was taken by Leicester City and not the other way round like many thought.
” I wanted to stay in England because that has been my dream for years but what will you do when you’re told a bid has been accepted for you? I had to move to where I know I will be celebrated “, Musa said
“Talks have been on about how I moved for the money but nobody has considered the fact that Leicester City also sold me for the money. Transfers can only happen if both parties agree to it and that was my case,” he concluded.
