Bucs Star On The Move, French Switch Looms?

An Africa Cup of Nations-bound Orlando Pirates star is reportedly closing in on a move to France, following a fairly good season where he finished with 14 Absa Premiership starts under his belt, as well as CAF Champions League experience.

As reported by the Siya crew, Bucs’ Marshall Munetsi has been heavily linked with a move to Europe, as confirmed by sources in the know.

The 22-year-old defender-cum-midfielder is currently with the Zimbabwean senior national team that is set to participate in this year’s AFCON in Egypt. 

Reports from Zimbabwe suggest that a move to French top flight side Stade de Reims could be on the cards for Munetsi during this transfer window.

Zimbabwe’s NewsDay reported that the French club, as well as Zulte Waregem in Belgium are both keen on the Pirates player.  

“There are many teams across Europe who have shown genuine interest on him, but he has picked Reims. He is heading for France. The deal is almost done and barring unforeseen circumstances, he will be playing in French Ligue 1 next season. His handlers have met with the club officials and they have agreed terms. Reims are now talking to Munetsi’s club Orlando Pirates,” NewsDay quoted a source. 

Should Munetsi secure the move to France, he would become the second player from the Soweto giants to do so this year, following Lyle Foster’s move to AS Monaco in January.
