Speculation was rife that Kaizer Chiefs were plotting a sensational move for an overseas based player, but it seems they may have missed out on him following news that he is heading to a Barcelona-based club in Spain.

According to an exclusive report by Soccer Laduma, Zungu is reportedly set for a move to Espanyol, this after his relationship with French Ligue 1 side Amiens has seemingly turned sour.

He spent the last season at Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers who had initially shown interest in securing his services for a mouth-watering R50 Million deal, however, due to a combination of recklessness off the field and poor form, Rangers decided against that.

Despite still having a year remaining on his deal with Amiens, Zungu is believed to be looking out for a move away as the French club are believed to be in financial ruin following the Covid-19 pandemic, any move to Chiefs is supposedly difficult as his salary demands are way high.

And Espanyol who are newly promoted following a stint in the La Liga 2 division, are plotting a coup for him. But it remains to be seen if Zungu will be able to slay the ghosts that stopped his move to Spain before, he was once on the radar of Mallorca, but the parties could not get the deal going.

Zungu is currently in South Africa, and it is believed that he was struggling to get his Visa to travel back to France, but with this new development.

Although Chiefs were credited with interest, they will certainly move on and look for other cheaper targets.

What do you make of this development?
