Simba SC star Luis Miquissone has remained coy over rumours linking him with a move to African giants Al Ahly.
The Mozambican attacking midfielder was one of Simba’s key players in their impressive run to the quarterfinals of last season’s CAF Champions League.
He scored a goal in each of Simba’s home matches in the group phase, including the decisive strike in a famous 1-0 win over Al Ahly – who went on to win the competition – back in February of this year.
Miquissone is also well known to current Ahly coach Pitso Mosimane, who worked with the player when he joined Mamelodi Sundowns from UD Songo back in 2018.
However, the 26-year-old has refused to open up about reports that Ahly are keen on signing him, directing all interest to Simba, where he still has one and a half years remaining on his contract.
“You know everything about my registration with Simba SC, I still have a contract with them so if there are other teams that need me they should first start there and then I will be informed by my officials,” Miquissone is quoted by IPP Media.
He added, “What I know is that there are many teams not only here in Africa but also in Europe. I have seen many agents, I have directed them to my club leadership.”
Simba are reportedly willing to sell Miquissone – and have even begun the process of recruiting his replacement – but are requesting a minimum fee of $600,000.
“That is our position… if there is any team out there that needs [Miquissone], and they will agree to give us the amount we are asking for, then we will release him,” said Simba board of directors vice chairman Salim Abdallah.
