Musona's arrival in Germany delayed

Musona"s arrival in Germany delayed

Kaizer Chiefs' star striker Knowlege Musona, who was expected to have left South Africa by mid-week for physical assessment and medicals examination at TSG 1899 Hoffenheim of Germany's Bundesliga, is still holed up in Johannesburg and will only leave this weekend.

The agent dealing with his impending move to Hoffenheim insists however that there is nothing amiss in the delay and the trip will be made either this weekend on early next week.

"He's still in South Africa, but we expect him to leave at the end of the week or early next week at the latest," Mike Makaab of Prosport International said.

Makaab further refuted any speculation that the delay might have something to do with the growing interest in Musona from other European suitors.

"Hoffenheim are in pole position and it will be interesting to see what happens over the next week or so.

"He's going for a physical assessment and medicals so we just hope that all goes well," Makaab added.

Musona is the subject of a club-to-club agreement between Chiefs and Hoffenheim, which was confirmed last week by Chiefs' General Manager Bobby Motaung.

"We've negotiated the offer club to club so now it's more about the player and what he wants.

"It's not an auction - we have been engaged with talks with Hoffenheim for a month now and now we have to go to Germany," Motaung had told BBC Sport at the time.

There appears to be variations between what Makaab is saying with respect to the agreement between the two clubs regarding Musona's move and Chiefs' understanding of the main reason for the trip to Germany.

Makaab appears to be suggesting that Musona has to be assessed by Hoffenheim, through something akin to a trial, while Motaung appears convinced that a tentative agreement, believed to be in the region of R16million has already been reached by the parties.

"It's definitely not a trial. We're going there for medicals, contract negotiations and so the boy can see if he is happy to join," clarified Bobby Motaung earlier last week.
