Nigeria’s top scorer in World Cup history is on the market. Author of four goals in two final stages with the Super Eagles (a double against Argentina in 2014 and another against Iceland four years later), Ahmed Musa was released from his contract by Saudi club Al-Nasr, in whose colors he has been playing since summer 2018. In two seasons, the swift forward striker will have played 57 games and scored 25 goals.

“We thank you and wish you all the best for the future”, can we simply read on the Twitter account of the now ex-employer of Musa, who did not specify the reason for this early departure (the commitment of Musa ran until June 2022, editor’s note). The 28-year-old former CSKA Moscow player is looking for a new challenge. As a reminder, Al-Nasr had disbursed 16.5 million euros to secure the services of the one who had thus become the most expensive recruit in history of the Saudi championship.
