It is reported that Billiat’s salary demands, though, could hamper the deal.

The Zimbabwean international reportedly wants a salary of at least €500 000 (about R8 000 061) a year, but Bucuresti may not be able to meet his demands.

Bucuresti becomes the latest club to be linked with after Zamalek (Egypt), Qarabag (Azerbaijan), Djurgardens (Sweden), Kaizer Chiefs, Orlando Pirates and Bidvest Wits were also said to be interested in his services.
