“I want to play for Manchester United, Manchester City, or Liverpool”- Gent goal machine Gift Orban

Orban has been phenomenal for Gent since he joined in January, and he could earn a move to a bigger club in the summer

Nigerian striker Gift Orban has revealed that he is open to move to Manchester United, Manchester City, or Liverpool, Soccernet.ng reports.

Orban has been superb for Gent since his transfer from Norwegian club Stabaek to Gent in January. He has taken Belgium by storm, scoring 19 goals in 19 appearances for the Buffaloes.

Since January, the 20-year-old star has scored three hattricks, and he has not shown any sign of slowing down.

Orban has been linked to some clubs abroad, with Leeds United and Barcelona in the mix. Meanwhile, the former Stabaek man has never hidden his desire to play in the Premier League.

Orban revealed the English clubs he would like to play for, and he has ruled out a possible transfer to Arsenal.

“My ultimate dream is to play in the Premier League. Man United, Liverpool, Man City,” Orban told Sporza per Euro foot.

“I don’t like Arsenal alone, it’s like they don’t want to win titles. I want to go somewhere where they do.”

“I still have a four-year contract here and I am not 0 percent but less than 0 percent on a departure.”

“You have to aim high in life and who says no to a bigger salary? But I’m still too young for Saudi Arabia. Playing in a stadium with 3 supporters is not for me.”


Orban has almost singlehandedly led Gent through the playoffs, scoring in all three of their games. Some of the top teams in Europe already have eyes on him. He would cost around €10million.
