Why youngster chose Hammarby over Man City – Bayern Munich and Real Madrid also interested

A personal intervention from Zlatan Ibrahimovic may have convinced a Manchester City target decide not to join the club, according to Aftonbladet as relayed by Sport Witness.

Ibrahimovic, whose illustrious list of former clubs includes fierce rivals Manchester United, allegedly sent a video message giving advice to 17-year-old Akinkumni Amoo. He reportedly told the youngster “we are waiting for you in Hammarby”, referring to the Swedish club which recently sold just over twenty per cent of its shares to Ibrahimovic.

This report comes from the Swedish publication who say that the message was enough to persuade young Nigerian Amoo to head to Sweden, despite interest from Manchester City, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

Amoo is a technically gifted winger who plays on the right but favours his left foot. He has previously been a target for Leicester City, who already have several Nigerian players in their squad.
