Muntari alerts Downs and Pirates?

Premiership

KickOff.com has been informed that legendary Ghanaian midfielder Sulley Muntari is a free agent and keen to play in the PSL next season.

Muntari, a cult figure who won the UEFA Champions League with Inter and also represented their great city rivals AC Milan, is back in Ghana after a short stint with Spanish second division side Albacete.

According to South Africa-based agent Sipho Shaven, the 35-year-old is training with Liberty FC in Ghana while weighing up his options for his next move.

"He has given me a mandate to talk to clubs in South Africa. He is very keen to play in the PSL next season," Shaven reveals to KickOff.com.

"I will be engaging with a few clubs in the next few days to see if there is a chance to bring him to South Africa next season.

"Remember, our league is well respected on the continent and a high-profile player will not turn down an opportunity to play in the PSL.

"He is currently training with Liberty in his home country to keep himself fit. He is a free agent."

The 84-time capped former Black Stars midfielder presents an interesting option for Mamelodi Sundowns, who have the deepest pockets but are overstocked in central midfield at the moment.

The Brazilians' foreign quota could be another issue, nevertheless, the thought of Muntari anchoring the midfield in the CAF Champions League would surely be tempting for coach Pitso Mosimane.

Muntari would be the highest-profile foreigner to come to the PSL since former Arsenal, Fulham and West Ham star Luis Boa Morte joined Orlando Pirates in 2012.

Pirates could also be an option if chairman Irvin Khoza is feeling adventurous after securing deals for Thulani Hlatshwayo and Deon Hotto from Bidvest Wits, while Kaizer Chiefs are ruled out due to their FIFA transfer ban.

SuperSport United are also in the market for an experienced midfielder to replace departed captain Dean Furman, who has moved with his family back to the United Kingdom.
