Silver Strikers chairman McDonald Mafuta Mwale confirmed that Chawanangwa would join the unamamed club in June this season.

“Chibuto has a club in Mozambique which wants Chawangwa’s services. The Portuguese club and Chibuto FC are sponsored by the same company. The officials of the Portuguese club were impressed with Chawangwa after watching  his footage,” Mwale said.

“I can assure you that come June, Chawangwa will be in Portugal.”

He described the window of opportunity for the nimble-footed striker as not only good news for him but Malawi as a whole.

“Portugal is a big step for him and will offer an opportunity to develop further. We are happy for him,” he said.

Silver Treasurer Fred Karonga said  the Silver will receive US$15,000 (K7.2 million) this week from Chibuto as well as a cut when the player moves to the Portuguese club.

“The arrangement is that we have a stake in the player even if he is sold to other teams in Europe. It is a good deal and both parties are happy,” Kalonga said.

Kaonga will become the second Silver Strikers player to play in Portugal after Jimmy Ukonde but he eventually changed his nationality.

Bullets FC also wanted the player but the chairman Mafuta-Mwale put his foot down that the player could not be sold to a competitor on the local scene.
