Media reports in Uganda reveal that Kampala Capital City Authority will have to part ways with more than Ugx 100 million if they want to sign Muhammad Shaban.
The reigning league champions have already spent Ugx 50 million on the striker for signing-on fees, but are yet to reach an agreement with Onduparaka where he remains contracted.
Shaban was unveiled by the Lugogo-based side three weeks ago based on a ruling from the FUFA Players’ status committee that gave leeway for him to join a club of his choice subject to agreement with Onduparaka, which KCCA hasn’t done yet.
Kawowo reports that KCCA made an offer of Ugx 20 million which the Caterpillars rejected and it’s now understood they want not less than Ugx 50 million for their former captain.
“KCCA disrespected us and we are ready to follow the matter to its logical conclusion,” club CEO Anthony Affeti is quoted in the Daily Monitor.
“The player might have got his Shs50m sign-on fee but we can’t allow him to move at Shs20m (which KCCA reportedly offered).
“If we can’t get over Shs50m from our best player who even featured at AFCON, then when will we get that chance?.”
