Galatasaray seems to know no bounds after the Nigerian rejected offers from two Russia’s Moscow sides, CSKA and Lokomotiv.
OwoSports.com sourced from Turkish sports news wire source, AKSAM on Monday that the Super Eagles ace who seeks regular football rejected both offers from CSKA Moscow and Lokomotiv Moscow, for a return to Turkey when the transfer window opens in January.
As Galatasaray and Monaco were in talks for a one and half-year loan deal for Onyekuru, then came the Russian clubs with their respective offers.
The Monaco management forwarded the offers to Onyekuru’s manager, William D’Avila and asked for his opinion.
Onyekuru, who discussed the offer with D’Avila said he would not go to Russia and that if he must leave Monaco, it would only be for Galatasaray.
“If Galatasaray agrees with Monaco, I will return to my old team without thinking. I don’t want to go to Russia,” said the 22-year-old Nigerian.
Onyekuru had a brilliant time with Galatasaray winning the Turkish Super Lig title last season, scoring 14 goals and provided 31 assists in 31 Super League matches.
