Musa Shuns Offers From Galatasaray, Fernebahce


CSKA Moscow of Russia attacker, Ahmed Musa has again turned down an opportunity of joining either two foremost clubs in the Turkish Super Lig, Galatasaray or Fenerbahce, as he prefers to try his options again in England.

Though he faced a rather torrid and nightmarish stint at former English Premier League champions, Leicester City, from where he returned to CSKA on Loan in January, Musa is of a view that he could make a better impression with a better deal in England.

The chances of Musa returning to Leicester are in doubt, though, with various reports indicating that he is looking elsewhere, following feelers that The Foxes want to offload him this summer.

The £16m star made just one appearance for Leicester between August and January, in the Carabao Cup victory at Sheffield United, and only once featured in a Premier League squad.

Since returning to CSKA, Musa has started all their matches in domestic competitions and the Europa League, scoring four goals.

After a run of three goals and two assists in his last three outings, Musa reportedly hinted that he has no intentions of returning to King Power Stadium.

Similarly, a Ukrainian agent, Sandor Varga recently said CSKA want to keep Musa on a permanent basis in the summer transfer window.

However, with Musa valued in the region of 13.5 million pounds, The Armymen will have to break their transfer record to sign the attacker.

Musa left the Russian capital club in the summer of 2016 for the former Premier League champions for 20 million euros, but Varga thinks the Russia Premier League team can get the player for 4.4 million pounds.

The agent said: ”I do not have specific information. But I would not be surprised if Musa again finds himself in CSKA.

”In Leicester he plays a little, sits on the bench. And CSKA Moscow is still the peak of his career.

“I believe in such a scenario. And it is possible not only to rent, but also a full-fledged purchase.”

”But if Musa from year to year will sit on a bench, the price for him will fall and fall. So it is better now, perhaps, to sell, otherwise he will leave for free.

”I do not exclude that now Leicester will sell him for a smaller amount. Plus will add bonuses for his goals for the team. They can get him for five million (euros).”
