Paul Onuachu’s ex-agent rejected €18 million move to Bundesliga

Paul Onuachu has arrived in Nigeria’s camp ahead of the international friendlies against against the Indomitable Lions of Cameroon.

Patrick Mörk, the former agent of Paul Onuachu rejected a move worth €18m for his client to a Bundesliga club during the summer transfer window.

Onuachu was Goal King of the Jupiler Pro League and netted 35 goals in all competitions during the 2020/21 season. Despite his heroics, he did not cash in on a big move away from Belgium.

And according to findings, it was not as if transfer offers never came the way of Onuachu but some lucrative bids were turned down by the attacker’s former agent, Monk.

A former Nigerian youth international who is now a football intermediary/agent, Ifeanyi Elegbua, popularly known as ‘Sabiboy’ said that he indeed had an offer for Onuachu from Germany.

“I had a really lucrative offer worth €18m for Paul Onuachu which his former agent, Patrick Mörk rejected out-rightly. It was actually from a club-side playing in the German Bundesliga.

“The deal would have seen Onuachu earn a salary of €2.5m-a-year but I wouldn’t just know why Mörk did not allow the transfer to see the light of day,” Elegbua said in a chat.

Onuachu has actually not done badly so far during the 2021/22 season with the Nigerian striker having scored eleven goals in 17 appearances across all competitions for his club-side, Genk.
