European Interest In Pirates Midfielder Intensifies…

According to Siya sources, an Orlando Pirates midfielder is now being heavily linked with a move to Europe, this after the Bucs worked hard behind the scenes to keep the player from moving in January. 

It was reported in March by the Siya crew that Pirates were believed to have talked Marshall Munetsi out of a possible move to the MLS, with the player also deciding at the time to remain focused on getting first team game-time with the Soweto giants.

However, a source in the know has since indicated to the Siya crew that an undisclosed club in Belgium and two clubs in Turkey are showing keen interest in securing the player’s signature in the upcoming July/August transfer window.

The source added that Pirates could have a bidding war on their hands for the 22-year-old in the coming weeks, as it is believed that these interested suitors are expected to approach the club with offers once the transfer window opens.

Munetsi, who made 23 appearances in all competitions with Pirates this past season, still has two more years remaining on his contract with the Buccaneers.

With it being believed that the club and technical team rates Munetsi highly, indications are that the Bucs won’t let the player go cheaply.  

Now, it remains to be seen what will become of Munetsi’s immediate future in the coming weeks, however, it is unlikely that Pirates would stand in the way of the player’s chance to ply his trade abroad. 

Contacted for comment, the player’s representative, Bevan Dicks said, “Yes there is interest in Marshall from overseas but the player is still contracted to Pirates. We are working on a deal but I would rather not discuss it any further.”
