News coming from Zimbabwe is that three Egyptian Premier League clubs are setting their sights on Caps United midfielder Devon Chafa.
The trio, Al Masry, Petrojet and Al Mokawloon are battling it out for the signature of the Warriors international.
According to sources close to the News Day website, the three clubs have contacted Chafa’s handlers regarding the player’s availability.
“He should get his air ticket and immediately make travel plans. The three clubs have all sounded out his manager, one has sent an invite to have him on trials,” a source said.
“They all want to have a look at him and it’s definite that one will take him.”
The former Dynamos midfielder is set to leave on a free transfer after his contract with United expired at the end of last month.
Should he sign in Egypt, this means that the Green Machine will not receive a cent for a player they gave an opportunity to showcase his talents through their CAF Champions League participation.
According to Caps president, Farai Jere, he confirmed that they had stopped negotiations to renew Chafa’s contract after the interest from abroad became apparent.
“We have started negotiations with some of the players that had their contracts expire at the end of the year. But the technical team have informed us that we should prepare for life without Chafa. He is leaving,” he added.
