Mamelodi Sundowns, as we know, has been the most prolific club in the transfer market for the past couple of seasons. The Brazilians have a newfound ambition of wanting only the best players at the club - with the main objective to rule Africa one day.
Nevertheless, Downs' quiet January transfer dealings have left many thinking, why were Downs so inactive in the January transfer window?
Yes, we may know by now that club owner Patrice Motsepe wants to cut the clubs wage bill, and not because of financial difficulties, but rather he wants the club to make better use his money. However, not making a single signing still has left fans wondering what the club's next move might be.
Having been linked with three big name players in Patrick Phungwayo, Itumeleng Khune and Oupa Manyisa throughout the season, their inability to secure all three deals has forced fans to think that Downs had a poor transfer period.
On the bright side, there were names such as Bryce Moon, Punch Masenamela and Bongani Ntuli that left Chloorkop, and maybe the club instead used the transfer window to clear out and make space for future signings.
Yes, to some extent, it has been a strange January transfer window for Masandawana, however, we can only but hope that the club would not become less ambitious in this regard.
What are your thoughts on this matter?
