Michael Olunga drops major transfer hint after disappointing end to the season

Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga has sparked transfer speculation with his latest social media post after a poor end to the season with Qatari club Al Duhail.

Harambee Stars captain Michael Olunga has sparked speculation over his future with a cryptic social media post.

Olunga, who ended the 2023-24 campaign trophy less, still continued to bang in the goals as he ended the season with 28 goals and three assists across all competition, with his last strike coming in the Emir Cup quarter-final against Al Arabi, when he scored a brace, before his side’s elimination in the semi-final by Al Sadd last weekend.

It means Olunga ended the season without silverware for the first time since he joined the Qatari side in January 2021.

Further, the 30-year-old has fueled speculation that he could have reached the end of his spell in Doha following his latest social media post.

“When I look at the horizon, the future is very luminous. Never a chance to blink twice. It was a pleasure doing business. Only one Ogada Olunga,” the striker posted on social media.

The post saw fans ask Olunga if it is the end of his time in Qatar but he neither denied nor confirmed.

Olunga joined Al Duhail from Japanese side Kashiwa Reysol in January 2021 and signed a three-year contract up to 2024.

There have no indications whether there was an option for a further year, or if talks have been held to extend the deal, which would make him an ideal candidate for a transfer.

Olunga has enjoyed a fruitful spell in Doha, scoring 109 goals in 108 games in all competitions, while winning the Golden Boot award back-to-back in 2021-22 and 2022-23 and led Al Duhail to the league title last season.

The forward was the subject of transfer speculation at the end of last season and the rumours will swell again this year as uncertainty remains over his future.
