CSKA Moscow plots Musa permanent return to Russia

After selling him outright to former English Premier League club, Leicester United, the management of CSKA Moscow has started plotting the final return of Ahmed Musa to the Moscow club.
The plot will be perfected during the summer transfer in Europe, at a time the former Kano Pillar star must have ran out his loan deal from the English club this weekend.
Leicester City and CSKA Muscovites would have to once again sit at the table to negotiate a transfer fee in the coming weeks.
The Director General of CSKA Moscow, Roman Babaev, told championat.com that Musa had a slow start following his return to CSKA Moscow but finished the season strongly, netting six goals in his last six matches in the league, while providing three assists. For us at CSKA, we want Musa back on a permanent deal, but everything will depend on the position of Leicester. We would very much like him to stay with us. Moreover, we are in the Champions League. It is impossible to exclude this possibility.”
He stressed that: ”But, if Leicester will have a more profitable financial offer on hand, than we can make a bid, it will be difficult. Surely they have a goal to sell the player, and not again loan him. But we will try to keep Musa.”
CSKA’s interest in having Ahmded Musa back grew bigger when the star striker, delivered a match-winning performance to wrap up his loan spell with CSKA Moscow in their 2-1 victory over Anzhi Makhachkala in their final game of the 2017-18 Russian Premier League season.
The on-loan Leicester City forward was coming off an impressive display in his side’s 6-0 mauling of Arsenal Tula last week, scoring twice. And he continued in such vein as he registered a goal before laying on the winner for Vitinho.
With only nine minutes gone at the VEB Arena, the 25-year-old put his side ahead, but Arsen Khubulov’s strike in the 33rd minute ensured both sides went into the break levelled. Just after the hour mark, Musa provided Vitinho with the all-important winner for strike partner Vitinho.
CSKA finished second in the league standings with 58 points though, two points off Lokomotiv in the summit of the table.
The Nigerian soccer star joined Leicester City on a four-year deal in July 2016 for a transfer fee of 19.5 million euros.
