Super Eagles goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali has sparked discussions about his future by mentioning European giants Manchester United and Real Madrid.

Nwabali made these comments while updating fans on his status with South African DStv Premiership side Chippa United. He clarified that no concrete offers are on the table yet, despite rumours linking him to potential moves to clubs in Europe, Asia, and South Africa during this summer’s transfer window.

Nwabali’s reputation soared following his stellar performances at the 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON), where he set a new record for the longest time without conceding a goal by a Nigerian goalkeeper in AFCON history.

The 27-year-old expressed his desire to explore new opportunities in his career but emphasized that he would not force an exit from Chippa United.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday ahead of Nigeria’s 2026 World Cup qualifier against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana, Nwabali said, “I really wish to leave, but at this point, there’s no club. I don’t really need to force it because if I can put up any performance with Chippa United in my national team, it doesn’t change anything if I’m at Manchester United or Real Madrid.

“I will leave if there’s a club, but I stick to my club if there’s no club.”
