Speaking to Bounce Sport on Monday, Kanu's manager Onyebuchi Abia said the former two-time Africa Player of the Year is trying to ensure that players of Papilo FC are not just dumped out of the club when the sale is completed.
"He told me he has not completed the paperwork as regards the sale of the club. He is selling the club to focus on his academy.
“But you know, we have to consider the players too, so I think that is part of the things that need to be done before the completion of the sale.”
According to Abia, Kanu is selling Papilo FC to Calabar Rovers due to the win-at-all-cost syndrome of Nigerian football leagues, especially at home.
