Kwasi Nyantakyi will hold discussions with Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour over investment opportunities in Ghana.

The Ghana FA boss will lead a delegation to hold initial discussions over a partnership agreement with the English club this weekend.

The agreement will see Ghana benefit in areas of youth development, coaching and in commerce.

But the Ghana FA boss will also look to convince  City’s billionaire owner to invest in the local football sector.

“It is one of the best in the World and we are happy with the way they have transformed the Premier League,” Nyantakyi said.

“I look forward to meeting Sheikh Mansour to convince him to come and also invest in Ghana.”

The partnership appears to be the first of its kind between a football association and a club.

    I am yet to see if Nyantakyi can pull this one off. He should have been developing the business side of foot ball long time ago to generate financial independence for the GFA. I hope it is not all talk.
