Sunshine Stars demand €2million from Lille for Oboabona
Sunshine Stars have asked Lille to pay two million Euros for Eagles defender Godfrey Oboabona after the French club tabled half that sum.
MTNFootball.com can specially reveal that Lille have put on the table a million Euros for 22-year-old Oboabona, who shone at the recent Africa Cup of Nations in South Africa.
Lille thus met the million Euros valuation of the Nigeria club for the player, but Sunshine have now demanded double that amount.
“Lille have through an agent made a bid of a million Euros for Oboabona, but Sunshine Stars say they now want them to double that figure,” a top source informed MTNFootball.com
“Sunshine through a top official wrote directly to Lille and not through the agents demanding for two million Euros.”
Efforts to reach Sunshine Stars general manager Mike Idoko were not successful.
The versatile Oboabona, who could play as a right back, central defender or defensive midfielder, has attracted a rash of interests from across the big leagues in Europe after he shone at the 2013 AFCON, which Nigeria won.
He was recently reported to be on his way to trials with top English Premier League side Arsenal, but Sunshine officials have since dismissed this.
The player himself has said God will decide where he moves to in the summer.
He told MTNFootball.com: “There are speculations and inquiries from many clubs, but I don’t know where I will end up. God will decide and chose the best for me.” [MTNFootball]
