Nigerian international, Aaron Samuel’s proposed move to CSKA Moscow has reportedly failed through following the inability of the Russian giant to meet Guangzhou FC’s asking price of five million euros for the striker.
For most of the year, the striker’s intermediary, the Chinese club and Roman Babaev, sporting director of CSKA Moscow, have been trying to reach an agreement for the fleet-footed player to make a switch to the Russian Premier League. But those discussions have not produced the intended results so far
Latest reports indicates that the leadership of the Muscovites finally pulled the plug on the deal because they were frustrated with the antics of Guangzhou R&F, who were not consistent during negotiations.
Amid interest from a few other European teams, Aaron Samuel has been advised to remain with Guangzhou R&F until at least the January transfer window.
