Manyama’s Turkish Suitors Revealed!
Manyama's Turkish Suitors Revealed!
The name of the Turkish side believed to be locked in negotiations for Cape Town City’s Lebogang Manyama has been revealed to Soccer Laduma, as the player’s immediate future with the Mother City-based club is still in doubt.
As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, a Turkish club is believed to have approached Chairman John Comitis for the services of his star player.
Siya sources close to the club have now revealed the name of the Turkish outfit and it is understood to be Super Lig side, Atiker Konyaspor.
As revealed this week, Konyaspor is currently in talks with City about a transfer for Manyama and it has been no secret that the 26-year-old is keen on a move away from the club.
However, as it stands, the only stumbling block in the two parties’ negotiations is the hefty price tag that Chairman Comitis has put on the player’s services.
As reported previously, City is believed to be wanting to cash in on around €1 million (R15.6m) in a transfer fee for the player's signature.
Indications are that City could lower their asking price and reach an agreement for Manyama's move to the Turkish top tier side in the side in the coming days, which will see Mamelodi Sundowns lose out on his signature. It's no secret that Coach Pitso Mosimane wants the player at Chloorkop, though a move abroad seems more likely at this point in time.
Now, it remains to be seen whether Kanyaspor are able to come to a mutual agreement with City and whether a move for the player will materialise in the coming days.
