Portuguese club CD Nacional have completed the signing of highly rated CHAN Eagles midfielder Christian Madu from Nigeria Professional Football League side, Enugu Rangers.
According to a statement from the club the 25-year-old Madu has penned a four-year contract with the Madeira-based outfit.
“CD Nacional and Enugu Rangers agreed on the transfer of Christian Madu to Madeira,” reads a statement on the club’s official website.
“The Nigerian midfielder, 25, is one of his Nigeria’s best midfielder, and has signed a four-year contract with Nacional.
“Madu will start training with his teammates tomorrow,” the statement on the club’s website read in part.
The combative midfielder was one of the top performers in the Enugu Rangers squad that claimed the NPFL silverware during the 2015/2016 campaign, the first for the Flying Antelopes’ in over 30 years.
Reacting on the switch to the Portuguese topflight Madu, who previously plied his trade with Giwa FC of Jos, took to the social media to express his feelings.
”Finally finally I am now a professional footballer in Portugal. I give God the glory.”
Interestingly, the CHAN Eagles ace will be joined another Nigeria star, Ibrahim Ahassan ‘Muazzam’, who only recently move to the club when he resumes tomorrow.
CD Nacional have suffered defeat in their two opening fixtures in the new campaign.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Nigerian forward Anthony Nwakeame has sealed a switch to Turkish Super Lig club Trabzonspor from Israeli champions Hapoel Be’er Sheva after both teams agreed a reported fee of €1 million.
According to an AOIFootball.com report the move was initially delayed as Be’er Sheva were hopeful of keeping the 1-cap Super Eagles striker for their campaign in the Europa League qualifiers.
However, that was not to be as Nwakaeme will now team up with compatriot fellow Eddy Ogenyi Onazi at the modest Turkish topflight campaigners.
