Talented central defender Visar Musliu has left Vardar to strengthen title rivals Shkendija with a sneaky move to a third club in order to get around the rules of his contract with the title holders.

One of the biggest prospect of the Macedonian national team defense has caused an earthquake in the domestic transfer window. The 23-year-old Musliu had a contract with Vardar with an option that he could leave anytime for a club outside of Macedonia. Shkendija, currently first-placed and firm favorites for the title, had an eye on him in order to solve the weakest spot in their team, the defense.
But how to sign a player from the biggest rival that has a contract in which it is noted that he can’t sign for a club in the same country? Easy. Shkendija had only to find a foreign club that will do a favor. That club is Prishtina from Kosovo. The Kosovars signed Musliu and immediately loaned him out to Shkendija with an option to buy him in the summer, which of course will happen.
Seems like Musliu wants to be always part of the club that is about to win the title. Last January he ditched Renova, the club that made him a footballer, to join Vardar and win the title. Now he will be chasing his second consecutive domestic league title, but this time with Shkendija.
Visar was one of the U21 players that participated at the 2017 EURO in Poland and later debuted for the senior making 3 appearances so far including a goal in a World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein.
