Former Portsmouth and AC Milan midfielder Sulley Muntari is set to join South Africa Premier Soccer League (PSL) giants Kaizer Chiefs.
Muntari has been linked with a move to the PSL before with Maritzburg United said to be interested in his services but, the player has turned down an offer from United in favour of a possible move to join Kaizer Chiefs.
“Maritzburg United have engaged the player’s representatives to discuss the potential of the player moving to KwaZulu-Natal this coming season. But the player has made up his mind and only wants to play for Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa,” a source told Kick-Off.
Muntari has previously gone public about his admiration for Chiefs but it is United who made an offer for the player who is a free agent after his short-term contract with Spanish side Albacete expired at the end of last season.
Chiefs are however banned by FIFA from signing any player for the next two transfer windows but hope that their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport goes through as they aim to bolster their ranks.
