Mamelodi Sundowns have enjoyed an excellent transfer window so far, and along with them bringing in a number of stars, they have also turned away roughly R38 million. Was this the right decision?
The Brazilians have welcomed the arrivals of Sibusiso Vilakazi, Ricardo Nascimento, Yannick Zakri, Thapelo Morena, Lucky Mohomi and Anele Ngcongca to the club, leaving the fans joyous over the reinforcements brought to Chloorkop.
Due to the club's financial status, the signing of quality stars was always expected, but the club's biggest challenge lay in keeping hold of their famous attacking trio.
Leonardo Castro, Khama Billiat and Keagan Dolly enjoyed an incredible campaign last term, seeing them being dubbed "Pretoria CBD" for their awesome combinations.
Coach Pitso Mosimane has managed to retain the services of Castro, despite reports suggesting the player wanted a return to Colombia, and he and his team have managed to keep ahold of the services of the latter duo too.
According to reports, a R25 million bid from an Eastern European club was made for Billiat, while Greek side Olympiacos also agreed to pay Dolly's release clause of R12.9 million.
Both those bids were rejected, which means Downs have turned down a massive R37.9 million in incoming transfer fees.
This was a bold move by the club, and one which that is expected pay off as the trio are likely to continue their scintillating performances once Castro and Dolly return from injury.
Do you think Sundowns made the correct move in turning down these huge bids?
