Ghana Captain Asamoah Gyan has disclosed that he came close to joining English Premier League champions Manchester City.
The striker, who turned 33 on Thursday revealed he had agree to join the club but injury hampered his move to City.
“I was close to joining Manchester City in 2008 but for an injury, I had agreed terms with them and negotiation went well, but I picked up an injury when I was playing for Ghana at the AFCON,” he said on Adom TV Fire for Fire show.
“I spoke to the Coach, and other top officials of the club and everything was in line and I could have joined them just after the AFCON but because of the injury I couldn’t join,” he added.
Gyan had an amazing spell in England, when he played for Sunderland before leaving for the United Arab Emirates to play for Al Ain.
The former Shanghai SIPG forward is Ghana’s all time leading scorer with 51 goals in 106 appearances.
