Muntari holding out for Chiefs move

Ghana legend Sulley Muntari has reportedly snubbed a move to Maritzburg United in favour of holding out for a Kaizer Chiefs move.

The former AC Milan midfielder is now a free agent after his short term contract with Spanish outfit Albacete came to end last season.

It was reported earlier this year that Muntari has a strong desire of playing in the South African top-flight football before he retires which he later confirmed via Marawa Sports Show on Radio 2000.

The Team of Choice has subsequently made a move for the former Black Stars midfielder as Chiefs remain restricted due to their FIFA transfer ban.

“Maritzburg United have engaged the player’s representatives to discuss the potential of the player moving to Kwazulu-Natal this coming season,” a source close to the player revealed to KickOff.com. “But the player has made up his mind and only wants a move to Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa.”

Chiefs were slapped with a two-window transfer ban by FIFA earlier this year but made an appeal to Court Arbitration of Sport (CAS) after they allegedly signed Fosa Juniors Midfielder Dax without compensating the Malagasy club.
