Moroccan champions, Raja Casablanca have reportedly offered US$1 million to Tanzanian giants Azam FC in a bid to get Zimbabwean international Prince Dube.
Meanwhile, Azam are reportedly reluctant to let their new signing go since they consider him crucial to their bid for the championship. Anonymous told The Sunday News:
Yes, there is interest from Raja Casablanca and some crazy figures are being talked about but it’s unlikely to happen because Azam would rather have Prince completing this season playing for them.
A million United States dollars is good money, anywhere in the world, but Azam are not desperate for money right now and, given a choice between winning the league, and getting a million dollars, the club’s owners will go for the league.
That is where things get complicated for this deal to go through, right now, because the Tanzanian club want their player to, at least, complete the season in their team.
The good thing is that Prince is making a case for himself, which every footballer should do, and it’s not easy for strikers, because they are always judged by the number of goals they score and they are as good as their last goal.
Sources said Prince Dube might even end up attracting interest from European clubs if he keeps scoring the goals, “which he is capable of doing right now because he has always been a very good player.”
The 23-year-old former Highlanders striker has been in impressive form for a sustained period of time now. He scored 20 goals, in his last 21 competitive games, for club and country, making him, on current form, one of the game’s deadliest forwards on the continent.
