The possibility for the Ghanaian to move to MLS remains open.

It was reported that Sulley Muntari (currently on the outs at AC Milan) had two Swiss Super League teams interested in securing his services. Fussballinfos.ch reported that league champion Basel and runners up BSC Young Boys were interested in the Ghanaian midfielder. However, his agent, Frederico Pastorello, downplayed the likelihood of a move to Switzerland happening.

"Basel and Young Boys? These are two very good clubs, but I do not think that Muntari’s next club destination would be at any of the two clubs."

Muntari made 15 Serie A appearances for AC Milan this season. Previously, he played with Udinese, Portsmouth, Inter Milan, and Sunderland.

Muntari's contract with AC Milan goes until 2016, but that hasn't stopped him from being linked with both the Los Angeles Galaxy and the New York Red Bulls. The midfielder has also been linked to Premier League clubs Hull City and Everton.

The Ghanaian midfielder was sent home from the World Cup in Brazil by his national team (along with fellow rumored Red Bulls' target Kevin-Prince Boateng) after allegedly assaulting one of the coaches.
