Bigger clubs than EPL surprise leaders Leicester will come for Nigeria skipper Ahmed Musa in the summer, according to CSKA Moscow president Yevgeny Giner.

Leicester tabled an 18 million pounds bid for Ahmed Musa in January and are reported to ready to spend more in the summer to get their man.

Manchester United were also linked with the 23-year-old striker, whose release clause is put at about 23 million pounds.

“Musa is a strong forward who can cover three positions and I’m sure that in the summer, there will be bigger clubs coming in for him,” warned CSKA boss Giner.

The CSKA chief also revealed he blocked the Nigeria star from moving last month because he is crucial in the team’s push for the Russian league championship.

“We talked to Musa and he understood that he needed to finish the season with us because we stand a good chance of becoming champions,” he said.

“Letting him move, for me, I think will be wrong. Football, however, also has its own economy. (
