Dynamos balk at asking price
Hwange Mine are demanding a hefty US$130 000 from Dynamos for their striker Francisco Zekumbawire.
Zakumbawire has already been registered with continental football governing body CAF by Dynamos, but Hwange Mine insist the player is still theirs as Dynamos have not met their asking price.
Dynamos chairman Kenny Mubaiwa said that the money Hwange are calling for is too much if they look at the fact that Dynamos received US$75 000 for winning the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League and US$100 000 for lifting the Mbada Diamond Cup.
He said some teams are unrealistic when it comes to their transfer fee expectations.
“It is not that we don’t want to pay for the players but we have to look at the facts of the matter,” Mubaiwa said.
“He is a very good striker and that’s why we want him but we have to agree on the right price tags for players.
“The money they want us to pay can not even be paid for players in other teams in South Africa. What they want is over R1m which is too high in Zimbabwe. “We are talking to them and we will see what happens,” concluded Mubaiwa.
