News broke in France that Castro is wanted by Ligue 1 side, Amiens SC, as a possible replacement  for Lacina Traore. According to French publication, L’Equipe, the Colombian has been linked with a move to Amiens, the club that Bafana Bafana international Bongani Zungu is contracted to.

 

Chiefs announced last month that Castro would be joining the club from Mamelodi Sundowns in January, however the 28-year-old is currently in South America and is only expected back in South Africa next week.

 

Following the news, the Siya crew e-mailed Chiefs’ Corporate Communications Manager, Alpheus Vina Maphosa, for comment on the link. Asked to comment on the link, and confirm whether Castro has been registered with Chiefs, Maphosa did not reply.

Castro will remain a Khosi according to his agent, here is some light below from news from goal of yesterday: Reports in France had suggested that the 28-year-old was at the centre of interest from Ligue 1 club Amiens in spite of his recent transfer, and with Castro currently out of the country as he awaits his work permit, many questioned whether or not the Colombian was a Chiefs player. However, the player’s agent has finally offered some clarity on the matter, and has poured cold water over any talk that Castro could be snapped up from under Chiefs’ noses. According to Joao Betancourt, who deals with Castro’s affairs, the report in the French publication L’Equipe was mere speculation regarding who should replace their star forward Lacina Traore. “The Amiens report is about who should replace (Lacina) Traoré now that he is leaving,” Castro’s agent told Independent Media. Furthermore, Betancourt explained that Castro is indeed an Amakhosi player and is scheduled to arrive back in South Africa on January 6 (Saturday).

Mr editor chiefs don't have to respond to all rumours you spread around if Castro is leaving he will leave a chiefs player meaning who ever wants him the must pay the money, if you don't have anything to say just keep quite because this thing of insults is very much childish and idiotic here we discuss football and forge friendships irrespective of the team you support ,it's just a thought

@khosiological it has happened before. mybe the player signed both contracts. thinking by signing the 2nd contract that would automatically cancel the 1 he signed with Chiefs 1st. If Pitso is correct then this guys does not want anything to do with RSA as he is always in him home country. Mybe he 1st signed with Bobby and later signed in France. Lets hope its not the case.

Ultimately it's Fidel's choice.....IF he WANTS to go to France, they want him and the price is right for all parties, he can go, simple, not the end of the world for anybody......we don't force any player to sign with us.

Whether France team want castro or not ,Castro signed a two and half year contract with chiefs. So if they want him , they must pay 6 million to chiefs if they want him seriously . Amiens must to the table no problem
