Persib Bandung star Makan Konate has admitted that he is currently in negotiation with a Malaysian club to discuss a potential move to the Malaysian Super League next season.
The 24-year-old Malian midfielder also revealed his decision to leave Maung Bandung was taken following the uncertain situation in Indonesian football. He has reportedly been offered a lucrative deal by an undisclosed Malaysian side.
“I spoke to my agent and he expressed his concern, since the Indonesian league hasn’t started yet. I don’t mind to stay here, but I can’t be in this situation for too long. I have to make a decision,” Konate told reporters.
“We are still negotiating, so I can’t really name the club for now. I’m waiting for a confirmation from my agent as well as the Persib management.
“I’m close to my Persib teammates, the fans and even the media. I feel comfortable living here, this team is like a family to me. If they want me to come back in future, I will definitely do so, without a doubt.”
Konate joined Persib from Barito Putra in 2013 and successfully helped the West Java outfit to lift the Indonesia Super League title in the following year.
