Guimaraes Put R52m Price Tag On Zungu?

Vitoria de Guimaraes don’t want to lose Bongani Zungu after offering him a new deal but could be prepared to let him leave if a hefty transfer fee is put on the table.

The Portuguese club signed Zungu last year after his Mamelodi Sundowns contract expired, landing the 24-year-old on a free transfer following his decision not to remain in South Africa.

Around one year down the line, Zungu has managed to make a real name for himself in the Primeira Liga, and as previously reported by the Siya crew, has attracted interest from a host of clubs both inside and outside of Portugal.

Now, with the player gearing up for this month’s Tace de Portugal final against one of his potential suitors, Benfica, it is thought that his club has named a price that they deem acceptable if matched.

The crew has been informed that the Bafana Bafana international would be allowed to leave if a club was prepared to put down €3.5m (R52 million) in return for his signature, with Guimaraes reluctant to lose him ahead of next season’s UEFA Europa League campaign.

Other European clubs are believed to have taken an interest, while a couple of English sides are also monitoring him despite the fact that, for now, he would struggle to get a UK work permit.

It remains to be seen whether Zungu, who has quickly become a favourite of Pedro Martins at his current club, will seek to move on or not, however, his current focus will be solely on trying to win his first piece of European silverware on May 28th
