Ahmed Musa biography is one piece of article many blogs are yet to define accurately. The good news is, I am going to do that here.
Think I'm bluffing? Then read on.
To begin the Ahmed Musa biography, let's take a look at who this player is.
Biography of Ahmed Musa
Musa plays as a forward and left winger for Saudi Arabian team Al-Nassr and the Nigeria national team.

The winger was transferred to Dutch club VVV-Venlo in summer 2010, but the move was not allowed to go through because he was only 17 years of age and thus not eligible.
Ahmed Musa won the AIT footballer of the year award on 8 March 2011.
The player signed for Russian side CSKA Moscow on 7 January 2012 for an undisclosed fee, and by 1s of June 2015, Musa signed a new four-year contract with CSKA until the end of the 2018-19 season.
By July 8, 2016, Musa moved to Leicester City for a club-record £16.6 million and scored his first goals with the club in a friendly against Barca in the 2016 International Champions Cup which they lost 4-2.

The Ahmed Musa marriage that I know of her two. He's been involved in two marriages.
Ahmed Musa first wife was Jamila Musa with whom he had two beautiful children, a boy, and a girl. The son's name is Ahmed Musa Junior and the daughter's name is Halima Musa.
Ahmed and Jamila got involved in a terrible fight and the former Leicester City forward blamed Jamila for flagging down the police on him and stating a family harassment accusation that he denied. Still, Ahmed was arrested.
Ahmed Musa marriage took another turn and then he got himself another wife, Juliet Ejue.

AHMED MUSA TRANSFER/SALARY
After what I'll call a disappointing spell at Leicester City, where he became the Foxes’ record signing for about £16million when he joined them from CSKA Moscow in 2016, Musa has left for Saudi Arabian club Al-Nassr in 2018.
After spending just four months with Kano Pillars, the 28-year-old attacker has now sealed a two-year deal with Turkish League side, Fatih Karagumruk, and will earn a staggering ₦1.02 billion ($2.5m) annually at the club as well as a weekly pay of $40,000, with bonuses, according to Sports Drill.

AHMED MUSA HOUSE
Ahmed Musa built himself a luxurious mansion in his native city in Jos, Plateau State where he grew and received his education.
This house is not the first for Ahmed Musa in Jos; there was a not so pleasant incident involving the talented forward’s previous residence in his native land.
In 2013, Musa’s home was suddenly attacked by armed men who were in search of his family – wife and little son. Fortunately, no one was hurt.
Ahmed Musa spent millions of dollars to construct a brand new mansion in Jos, with more security features.

AHMED MUSA MOTHER
Ahmed Musa biography won't be complete if I don't delve into his family matters.
Ahmed Musa’s mother, Sarah Moses, single-handedly nurtured the Super Eagles star and her other four daughters after her husband’s death 21 years ago.
In 2017, Ahmed Musa's mother graced the unveiling of the ₦500 million sports fitness centre in the ancient city of Kano built by her son.
At that event, Sarah Moses described Musa as a philanthropist who has touched so many lives with his wealth.
According to Sarah Moses, contrary to insinuations that the footballer hailed from Jos, Plateau state, Ahmed Musa’s mother said, “Ahmed Musa is actually from Maiduguri in Borno state. I am the second wife to the late father who died when he was seven years old.”
Ahmed Musa’s mother died Thursday 24th of January 2019. Sarah Moses’ death was announced by Musa on his Twitter page.
