Lagos - Nigeria U17 international Kingsley Michael is being linked with a move to the English Premier League, with Manchester City among the clubs interested in snapping him up from nursery team, Football College Abuja.

On a personal level, the midfielder's father, Dogo Michael, has stated that he would prefer a move to Manchester City though West Ham and Chelsea are exploring ways of signing him.

''Manchester City have directly approached me, I hear West Ham and Chelsea are also interested. I want a big move for him, I would prefer Manchester City,” Dogo Michael said.

''I have seen the Manchester City representative on ground, a bird in the hand is worth two in the bush. We will continue discussions with them.''

The Benue State native has revealed that he wanted Kingsley Michael to be a soldier, but always knew he was destined for great things as he was compared to Nwankwo Kanu and Emmanuel Amuneke while in primary school.

''At the start, I never wanted him to play football, I wanted him to go to the Academy and become a military man.

''But when he was in primary school, they always tipped him to become as successful as Nwankwo Kanu and Emmanuel Amuneke.

''I am happy he scored against a great country like Brazil at the World Cup. He has chosen football as his career, I and the whole family wish him the best,'' Dogo added.
