Downs' Silence In The Transfer Window Confirms The Team Being Broke?
With the transfer window in full swing, seeing teams strengthening their squads for the new season,except for the usual suspects Mamelodi Sundowns who are yet to announce the team's first signing for the 2017/2018 campaign, one wonders if the Chloorkop-based side is broke or not.
Mamelodi Sundowns has been known by many as the big spenders, with regards to their dominance in the market, using the team's financial muscles to recruit Mzansi 's top talent and the world as a whole, as we saw in the previous couple of seasons signing star players.
Unlike the past couple of seasons, the Brazilians are very quite. As a result, that leaves media houses and football fans across the country guessing of which players will be playing for the Tshwane giants in the upcoming season.
However, one would never know what to expect from Patrice Motsepe 's Mamelodi Sundowns team. Is the team busy behind the close doors finalising the biggest deals that will shock the country when being announced or Masandawana are broke, meaning they can no longer afford to spend over the market?
Having said that, what does Mamelodi Sundowns' silence in this transfer window tells you? Is the team broke, not affording to spend big like the team used to...?
