Kelechi Iheanacho embroiled in Legal Battle with an Agent


Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola says that forward Kelechi Iheanacho is close to joining Leicester City.

Super Eagles striker, Kelechi Iheanacho could be jailed for allegedly misleading a court in Pennsylvania, USA.

After several days' delay, Manchester City striker Kelechi Iheanacho will today undergo a medical at Leicester City after which he will complete a 25 million pounds transfer.

The UK Sun have however published photos which proved that Iheanacho indeed met and spent lots of time with Galeano.

In his court affidavit, Galeano said: "For the avoidance of doubt, Iheanacho and I have spent hundreds of hours together".

If found guilty, he could be jailed for two years.

Now being represented by Just Football, Iheanacho pulled out of a contract with First Eleven and Henry Galeano two years ago.

Galeano claims he became Iheanacho's official Fifa-licensed agent in July 2013 after both men signed a Representative Agreement.

He claims that he believed Galeano was an alias used by First Eleven Management co-owner Robert Zanicky.

"I think we all find it frustrating but it is the current market", he told Sky Sports News following Friday's 0-0 friendly draw with MK Dons.

He scored his first senior goal against Crystal Palace at the start of the 2015-16 season, going on to net 14 times in all competitions.
