Wits Join Chiefs And Pirates In Castro Race

Bidvest Wits Join Kaizer Chiefs And Orlando Pirates In Castro Race

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 31, 2017 09:14 AM

The Siya crew has been informed by a source in the know that Bidvest Wits have joined the race to land the signature of one of Mamelodi Sundowns’ strikers.

It was reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma that Kaizer Chiefs have had their bid for Leonardo Castro rejected by Sundowns, with their Soweto rivals, Orlando Pirates also intensifying their interest in landing the Colombian.

The Siya crew has since been informed that Wits have joined the race to land the striker’s signature, with sources indicating that the two clubs could propose a swap deal, which will see Castro join the Braamfontein-outfit and include Phakamani Mahlambi go the opposite direction.

It was reported on Soccer Laduma previously that Sundowns have shown a keen interest in bringing Mahlambi to the Chloorkop-based club, however, sources have since revealed that the Clever Boys might put a hefty price-tag on the Bafana Bafana international’s services.

Although it has since been established that during the final hours of the window, Sundowns could propose a swap deal for Mahlambi, that could include money and the services of Castro.

Castro is in the final year of his contract with the Brazilians and at this point, it seems unlikely that the player will be extending his stay further than the 2017/18 season.

With that being said, Sundowns will want to sell Castro on a free at the end of his deal next year, June 30.

'Sell Castro on free ' I do not understand this. Sell him or release him?

This Castro guy is tired Sundowns used him because they had Dolly and Billiat to supply him with balls so that he can score since he's a target-man,so @ Bucs we don't have such players, I don't think we really need a player like him

I really dont enjoy SL during transfer period...they report lies each and whenever a certain player signs for any club, they praise themselves...first of all they said Downs want to cash in for Castro, later they report chiefs bid was rejected....there's no truth in that.. We just sold Lebese cheap to Downs, there's no way they'll reject a bid for a player they want to cash in to chiefs after Lebese deal. It's no secret that we don't normally buy players...Bobby would've opted for swap deal between Lebese and Castro
