R15m Price Tag On Sundowns’ Target!

R15m Price Tag On Mamelodi Sundowns’ Target Services!

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 05, 2017 11:14 AM

Cape Town City slapped a €1 million (±R15 million) price tag for the services of one of their star players amidst interest from Mamelodi Sundowns and clubs abroad.

Soccer Laduma broke the news of Sundowns’ interest in Lebogang Manyama last year, December and despite John Comitis confirming to the Siya crew at the time that no South African money will be able to buy Manyama, it was subsequently revealed by Head Coach Pitso Mosimane that he would like to have the player at his club.

At the time, Mosimane also revealed that should he look to go in for a player like Manyama, City could put a hefty price on the player’s services and City chairman, Comitis has done just that.

“It would be nice to have him (Manyama), but he belongs to another club, and you know what happens with Sundowns… When Sundowns wants a player you know the story. We don’t get him or he costs R10m - the same as the PSL title,” Mosimane revealed to media at the PSL headquarters on March 29 this year.

The Siya crew has been reliably informed by sources in the know that Comitis has placed a €1 million (±R15 million) fee on Manyama after interest spiralled from both Masandawana and the latest being an undisclosed European club.

Now, with news of the 26-year-old's value, it remains to be seen whether the likes of Masandawana will look to approach City for Manyama in the current July/August transfer window.

They should have learnt their lesson with Villa where they paid a considerable amount of money but they still haven't got their money's worth

I disagree with Pitso. They are the ones who alliwed that situation because The Hon. Motsepe is a billionaire. Players wanted to come to Chiefs but club Bosses and Agents opted for the highest bidder, which was on several occassions Sundowns. Its the other way round Pitso!!!.

I know SA players need to play for competitive teams but the price tag put on their heads won't do any justice at all...why would u buy a player for the same amount as the title u are competing for for the whole 32 games, whilst he won't win you matches or hardly score 15 goals? What you investing in, really!

The difference between gauteng teams(chiefs, pirates,sundowns,supersport,wi ts n others) n other province teams is that gauteng teams are companies so they don't care about talent but for them is all about business n if u dnt deliver u'll be sidelined no matter how good u are. So nw the other teams is all about a players talent n if u are good, everyone will like u n they'll make sure that u r happy bcoz of yo talent so nw a player from small teams where he was a spoil brat n when he come to jhb he experience difficulties n end up complaining on social network bcoz he's used at being a spoil brat n nw to chiefs, pirates, sundowns he doesn't last bcoz he cnt handle the pressure

Pitso must think carefully about manyama coz the last time we bought an expensive player(R10m villa) he's still struggling even nw for starting line up, players like manyama are good for small teams but don't cope for big teams eg Cale, villa, norodien, wome, nkosi, there's many more n manyama is one of them, he won't handle the pressure.
