According to an American-based agent, Justus, who failed to disclose the identity of the Turkish club, he said: “the club first offered Musa €2m a year, but he turned it down.” “The president of the club said that they could not go above that amount due to the coronavirus-induced financial problems every club in Europe is facing.”
“The agent also said: “However, the club’s president has said that they are desperate to have Musa on their payroll next season and have come back with a final offer of €2.2m a year.”
According to him, the former Leicester City player has already reached an agreement with the Turkish side, and the 28-year-old attacker will travel to the European country this new week to sign the deal.
Super Eagles captain, Musa on April 13, sensationally made his return to Kano Pillars for the remainder of the 2020/21 Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) season.
Amongst the contractual agreement reached between Musa, who left Al Nassr in October, and Pillars is that anytime he receives an offer from abroad, he would be released.
