Lagos - News24.com understands that CSKA Moscow and Guangzhou R&F continue to haggle over a transfer fee for Nigeria international Aaron Samuel.
The Russian Premier League side have failed to meet the attacker's five million euros buy-out clause after several months of negotiations but they have agreed to insert a 10 percent sell - on fee on top of the €3.5 million that has been offered.
Unlike some European teams, Guangzhou R&F are backed by real estate developers and don't have cash flow problems, and are reluctant to do
business with the Muscovites except they cough up €5 million.

But CSKA Moscow power brokers are confident a deal is imminent, with the club instructing Aaron Samuel to start processing his visa to Russia.
A five - year contract has been offered to the Guangzhou R&F frontman but the player and his intermediary have insisted that the duration of the agreement should be four seasons.
The 21 year old has maintained his professionalism while talks are ongoing, and netted a brace in Guangzhou R&F's 2 - 2 draw with Guizhou Renhe in the Super League on Thursday.
Aaron Samuel was hotly linked with a move to Monaco in the winter of 2014 but the transfer failed to materialize.
