English Premiership giants Manchester United have joined the race to sign CSKA Moscow striker Ahmed Musa.
The Super Eagles skipper is on the wishlist of table-toppers Leicester City who have already made of bid in the region of £15 million but it was rejected by the Muscovites.
The Foxes now face competition from Manchester United, with the Old Trafford side opening a line of communication with Musa’s United Kingdom – based agency.
Having said that, Leicester City remain in the driving seat to capture the signature of the former VVV Venlo and Kano Pillars star and they are expected to make another bid to CSKA Moscow on or before the next 40 hours.
Ahmed Musa has contractual obligations with the Russian Premier League side until the summer of 2019, having prolonged his contract last summer.
