Ghana International, Sulley Muntari has revealed that he is speaking to a host of clubs in Europe and hopes to secure a move before the summer transfer window shuts at the end of this month, but was quick to add that the opinion of his family, especially his wife would hold sway in the final analysis.
Speaking on the Football Legends Night Show on GH One at the weekend, Muntari said, he wants to be a constant presence in the life of his child.
“I am talking with a few clubs and after I will decide with the family where to choose.”
Asked if he would prefer to stay in Italy, the former AC Milan player said “ I live here, I love Italian football so yeah If I have a good deal here, of course, I am going to stay.”
Despite his preference to stay in Italy, Muntari said he would be open to a move to another country, as long as his family is in support of it.
“Yes, I don’t mind but definitely I will have to discuss that with my family because they are very important to me and I have a little kid, so I have to be around him and that matters too. Now I don’t really care about myself. What I care about more is my family, and what they want. So whatever and wherever they want me go is where I will go. For me I just want to be near my family.”
Muntari is currently without a club after leaving relegated Italian side Pescara. The 32 year old played in three (3)FIFA World Cups with the Black Stars (2006, 2010 & 2014).
He is currently on suspension following his role in Ghana’s disastrous 2014 World Cup campaign in Brazil, which saw the Black Stars exiting the tournament at the Group stages.
