Algerian national goalie Rais M'Bolhi, currently playing for Bulgarian CSKA, is to be sold by Slavia, who hold the rights to him for EUR 1.5 M.
The Algerian footballer is on loan to CSKA until December, and CSKA has made it clear that it much desires to acqure the player, given his stable good performances.
But now Slavia has issued a EUR 1.5 M price, which might be unpalatable to CSKA, given the financial crisis that the red team has found itself bogged in.
Reports have it that this is due to the massive interest on the part of two Russian teams in the Algerian goalie, who is currently the only player in the Bulgarian national football championship who played at World Cup 2010.
M'Bolhi is said to have missed CSKA's latest practices because of being on trial in Russia.
In particular, FC Rubin Kazan, Russia's 2009 champion, is said to be strongly interested in him.
Speculations have it that Turkish teams might be also interested in the Algerian goalie, for which the upcoming CSKA-Besiktas game is said to be of great relevance.
