Tim Cahill transfer news: Next club already lined up – Kevin Muscat

MELBOURNE Victory coach Kevin Muscat says he knows Tim Cahill well enough to believe he has his next playing deal stitched up, while Mark Bosnich revealed a conversation with a key Cahill confidant over the star’s future.

Cahill sensationally walked from Melbourne City and, most likely, the A-League on Wednesday after agreeing terms to rip up his contract with the expansion side.

The 38-year-old has yet to announce his next destination, saying he would focus on preparing for a fourth World Cup next June’s tournament in Russia. It’s there that he will aim to underscore his place in the sport by joining Pele as one of just four players to have scored at four tournaments. With so much on the line, Muscat says the all-time leading Socceroos goalscorer wouldn’t be leaving his future to chance.
