More spoils of the World Cup are coming the way of Leicester City attacker, Ahmed Musa, as the English duo of Huddersfield Town and Fulham are now in the hunt for his signature, alongside a top club in Saudi Arabia.
So soon after reports hinted that Musa has gained summer transfer interest from Benfica, Galatasaray and Brighton, the former CSKA Moscow of Russia star has now been offered a £40m booty in Saudi Arabia, following his heroics with the Super Eagles at Russia 2018.
The Saudi club is said to have already contacted Musa’s agent, William D’Avila, who was in Saint Petersburg, Russia for the Eagles’ last group match against Argentina, and they are now expected to make a formal offer for the former Kano Pillars and VV Venlo star.
In a rival bid, Galatasaray have agreed to pay Musa four million pounds a year after tax as they battle to snatch him away from Leicester and out of the reach of all other suitors.
Musa still has two years left on his contract with Leicester, who paid about 16m pounds to sign him from the Moscow-based Russian army-owned club in 2016, but he has failed to establish himself at King Power Stadium.
With Huddersfield and Fulham also joining the hunt for his signature, Musa has admitted he is uncertain about his future, but will shortly return to Leicester for pre-season, after a successful loan stint at CSKA.
Musa has two years left of his contract with The Foxes, after he joined them on a four-year deal, but he could be tempted away with big money bids.
“It’s a tempting offer as the player now has to consider securing his financial future after playing at two World Cups and also playing in the Premier League.
“Nothing has been sealed yet but the offers have continued to pour in for Musa especially after his goals against Iceland at the World Cup.
“The player’s new agents are studying the various offers and one of them is from Galatasaray, who are willing to pay him four million pounds a year,” a source disclosed.
