Victor Osimhen’s much heralded move to German club Wolfsburg, may have hit the brick wall as the player’s family and football agents are at cross roads concerning his transfer.


Osimhen was the star of the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile and he has been a subject of transfer speculations to various European clubs. Last week Osimhen was in Wolfsburg on a familiarisation tour prior to signing a contract, but that will not happen.

Patrick Osimhen the father of the Golden Eaglets player has disowned 36 Lion CEO Liameed Olawale Gafar who facilitated the trip to Germany.

“Gafar (36 Lion CEO) is not Victor’s legal guardian, Victor can’t have a legal guardian when his father is still alive , “ Michael Osimhen  the players brother said.

“Gafar is not a Nigerian, how can he be his guardian, he is telling lies. We don’t want Victor to play in Germany . They said they will be back this week and we will continue discussions. Gafar took them to Germany, no other person.”

Michael Osimhen added : “They went to Germany without the father, they are on their own. Victor is not signing any contract because they traveled without his knowledge.

“The father said he will report Wolfsburg and the agents to Fifa if they sign any contract. It was only on Thursday we found out that they went to Germany.”
