Possible Snags In The Manyisa Deal

Many football loving fans in South Africa would no doubt have followed the possible transfer of Orlando Pirates midfielder Oupa Manyisa to Absa Premiership champions Mamelodi Sundowns with keen interest.

The player's agent came out confidently saying that the deal would happen, however things went quiet before the window slammed shut on Friday.The Fan Park crew now considers some of the reasons as to why the deal failed to materialise.

Did Bucs Raise Their Asking Price?

Pirates management may have revised Manyisa’s price tag at some point, wanting more money for their star man. This could have caused the Sundowns management go back to the drawing board in regard to their offer.

Too Little Time To Conclude Deal?

With Manyisa being out of the country on AFCON duty, negotiations would have always been difficult. Also, Bafana only arrived in South Africa after the transfer window had closed, and both parties may have run out of time to conclude the deal.

Could Downs Have Wanted Ace Cheaper?

Aces’ contract with Pirates is reportedly coming to an end in June this year, according to his agent - though Pirates have stated otherwise. Should the former be correct, then Sundowns could pounce to get the player on a free.

These are all possible reasons, though the Siya Crew is likely to provide more accurate details over the next few days. What are your thoughts on the matter?
