Musa Barrow may not have imagined this in 2016 while he was but an untried youth international for Gambia.
Dreams, it is said, do come true and it will be one of such an occasion for Musa Barrow if he goes on to play in the English Premier League.
He is proving too hot to handle for defenders in the Italian Serie A and is fast becoming as good at scoring as Juventus and former world best player Cristiano Ronaldo.
The fact that both are kicking it in the same league only offers to make it easier for the striker from Gambia to learn from the former Manchester United goal-assassin who has seen it and been there.
However, this thrill of sharing the same league as the Portuguese sensation and pulling off feats like the erstwhile Real Madrid forward could end faster that the 21-year-old could have thought now that Jose Mourinho is in the equation.
When big managers call, players can only but oblige. The same could happen for Barrow considering Mourinho is beckoning if transfer reports are anything to go by.
With the rate of Musa’s scoring, it will be no surprise if Inter Milan -who learnt the hard way of his potent -come joining queue of big name clubs clamouring for his services.
Seven goals from the eight times he has been in Bologna’s starting line up is a statistic hard not to notice for any ambitious club and this offers to explain -in glowing details – Mourinho’s discretion to use his magnetism powers.
Tottenham won’t be needing additions in the forward line with England international Harry Kane on his best form. But if, his recent on-and-off marriage with injuries is a yardstick, then one more signing, a proven one at that, will jolly good do for the White Hart Lane outfit’s title plans next season.
Reports in England claim scouts have been asked to assess the scorpion.
Making all trending assumptions about a move to Tottenham for Barrow more feasible is Jose Mourinho’s penchant for African players.
That though, will only see light of day if the English Premier League side are prepared to slap a 30 million pounds fee for the Gambia international whose market value seems to be soaring each day he scores.
He netted on Wednesday but it wasn’t enough to salvage a draw as Sassulo ran out 2-1 winners.
