Mamelodi Sundowns midfielder Haashim Domingo is close to joining Moroccan giants Raja Club Athletic.
Domingo, 27, will leave Masandawana at the end of the month after the club couldn’t agree onto a new deal with the player, as reported by SABC Sport.
With Domingo looking for a new club, SSNEWS has learnt that he is set to join three-time CAF Champions League winners Raja ahead of next season.
“We will sign Domingo. It’s as good as done,” a source told this publication.
Domingo joined Sundowns from Bidvest Wits in 2020, making 57 appearances for the club during which he scored five goals and set up seven more.
He featured in 17 games across all competitions this campaign and head coach Rulani Mokwena was understood to be on retaining his services.
However, after the club and Domingo couldn’t agree onto a new deal, it seems the lure of Raja has convinced the attacking midfielder to move to Morocco, with only finer details in his contract still to be ironed out.
Domingo won three DStv Premiership titles, one Nedbank Cup trophy and one MTN8 trophy during his time with Masandawana.
Haashim Domingo has been recognized as one of the best players in the Premier Soccer League for his way of playing in the Mamelodi Sundowns Football Club team and Sundowns FC are set to replace him with a Midfielder who plays in the Premier Soccer League since the foreign spots in the Mamelodi Sundowns Squad are full and he will be having a big move to Raja which might earn him a big contract with a large salary.
Haashim Domingo was also wanted by Kaizer Chiefs Football Club but the club didn’t agree with contract talks with Domingo which was agreed to be a deal that is big and more higher than other current Kaizer Chiefs Football Club players.
Haashim Domingo was one of the most disciplined players in the Premier Soccer League as he was well behaved and he was not found in a case of alcohol abuse and he was one of the players in the Premier Soccer League who had less yellow cards and he had played 50%+ of matches in the Mamelodi Sundowns squad.
Haashim Domingo will now have a farewell party of his departure to a new team.
