CSKA Moscow is currently located at the top of the Russian Premier League after having collected 43 points from their opening 21 league matches. Leonid Slutsky is the manager of CSKA Moscow and he is aiming to win the Russian league with his club, so far things have been going according to plan for Leonid Slutsky and his team.
Even though CSKA Moscow has been doing fairly impressively in this season, the center of attention is being directed to away from the Russian club and more towards a specific player which in this case is Ahmed Musa.
Ahmed Musa is a 23 year old Nigerian footballer who is performing for CSKA Moscow with a contract that runs until 2019 but his time with the Russian club might be ending sooner than expected and this is due to the fact that the young attacker is being eyed as a summer signing for a few different clubs.
Leicester City is one of the clubs of the Premier League that have shown most interest in signing Ahmed Musa and the Director General of CSKA Moscow, Roman Babayev said that they will be listening to offers for Ahmed Musa in the summer transfer window.
“It is not right to keep the player when he has offers from the Premier League for the right price. Several English clubs are actively interested in Musa. And not just English sides. Footballer faithfully served CSKA and not to let him go to the best league of the world from our side would be incorrect.” CSKA Moscow’s Roman Babayev said.
The Russian club has already turned down offers from Leicester City and other clubs in the past but CSKA Moscow wasn’t prepared to offload Ahmed Musa, however they are now willing to let him go but it’s believed that the interested club will have to splash out around £15million in order to secure the services of the highly rated offensive winger.
