Exclusive: Manchester City Reject Approach From Celtic For Chidiebere NwakaliScottish Premiership champions Celtic have made enquiries about signing Chidiebere Nwakali from Manchester City, according to the midfielder’s camp.

The Nigeria youth international has impressed since joining Norwegian Tippeligaen side IK Start in March, starting the last ten games in the topflight and scoring one goal against Aalesunds FK.

With his loan deal with IK Start set to run out in the coming weeks, Nwakali recently traveled to Manchester to discuss his future with the club and it is not ruled out that he would take part in pre-season training.

“Celtic wanted to sign Chidiebere last week, they approached Manchester City but the club gave them a negative response,” Chidiebere’s elder brother Allwell Nwakali told allnigeriasoccer.com.

“He was in Manchester to see the officials after he was given a two-week break by IK Start to find out if he will take part in pre-season. We are working hard for him to start playing for Man City. ”

Chidiebere is currently in Lagos and will travel to Owerri on Sunday to attend the birthday of his younger brother Kelechi Nwakali, who is with the national team.

The ex-Flying Eagles star is now managed by very influential agent Pere Guardiola.
