Three time FIFA World Cup Ghana star Sulley Muntari has received his International Transfer Certificate (ITC) ahead of his proposed move to Ghanaian giants Accra Hearts of Oak, Nimdee FM have reported.
Hearts of Oak board member Dr Nyaho Tamakloe is on record to have said the 2000 African champions and 2004 CAF Confederation Cup winners have informed former AC Milan star Sulley Muntari about their interest in him.
Muntari has trained with the capital club in the past and even went to the extent of dashing money to the club’s playing body.
Rumours about his reported move to the club swelled midway through the Ghanaian season as he was speculated to have reached agreement with the club.
However the COVID-19 pandemic decisively put the rumours to rest as football has been halted in the country.
But, this has not stopped the speculations about the future of the player with Sunyani-based Nimdee FM reporting that the International Transfer Certificate of the player has arrived.
Richard Ntow Gyan, a broadcast journalist with impeccable sources within Hearts of Oak, revealed the arrival of the ITC has set the tone for the Phobians to complete the signing of the midfielder who played for Ghana at the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups.
Muntari scored 20 goals in 84 appearances for Ghana’s senior national team – the Black Stars. He has iconically featured for clubs like Udinese, Sunderland, Portsmouth, Inter Milan and AC Milan and won the English FA Cup with Portsmouth as well as the UEFA Champions League with Inter Milan under Jose Mourinho.
Hearts of Oak have declared that they are still on the transfer market to make strategic signings.
