The Nigeria international has seen his profile rise considerably during the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
