The DStv Premiership match between Moroka Swallows and Kaizer Chiefs took place on November 26, 2023, at Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg, South Africa. Edson Castillo of Kaizer Chiefs participated in the match. Reports from Siya sources have indicated that Egyptian club Zamalek SC may be interested in acquiring Castillo, a key player for Kaizer Chiefs. The club might have to put in efforts to retain him, as Zamalek’s interest appears strong.
According to one source, the late news of Zamalek’s interest came toward the end of the January transfer window. However, even if the news had arrived earlier, it is believed that Kaizer Chiefs would have been reluctant to agree to a deal. Castillo’s importance to the team was highlighted, with the source expressing doubt that the club would easily let go of such a valuable player.
Another source suggested that the potential hiring of a new coach at the beginning of the next season could influence the situation, as the new coach may have their own perspective on the matter. This source also emphasized the role of financial negotiations and business aspects in football transfers. The end of the season was seen as a pivotal point in paving the way for Castillo’s future.
The 29-year-old Castillo, who joined Chiefs at the start of the current season, has played in 15 league games, scoring three goals from midfield. His impact and value to the team were underlined by the sources. It was mentioned that Chiefs were contacted for comment but did not respond at the time of preparing the story.
