Kelechi Iheanacho has fallen out of favour with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, and it has been suggested by a City insider that the Nigeria international allegedly refused to sign a representation contract with one of the mostpowerful agencies in the world, Pere Guardiola’s Media Base Sports.
The striker has been frozen out of the Citizens squad, and has not been included on their 18-man roster for the last four matches in all competitions.
It was earlier claimed by Chidiebere Nwakali’s camp that Pere Guardiola now looks after the former Flying Eagles midfielder, and the Spanish agent also manages another Man City talent Brahim Díaz, who was rewarded with a new deal in September.
When asked why Iheanacho is no more getting game time, a Manchester City staff told allnigeriasoccer.com : “Kelechi refused to sign a contract with Pere Guardiola, that’s why he is out of the team. ”
Iheanacho is thought to be represented by Gareth Bale’s agency, Stellar Group, but it is being contested by the company that brokered the deal that took him to Manchester City in 2014, First Eleven Management.
