Pirates Want Around R29m For Manyisa

As revealed in today’s issue of Soccer Laduma, the Siya crew has been informed that the Buc­caneers will not be letting Oupa Manyisa leave them on the cheap.

Reports in the Egyptian media re­cently linked ‘Ace’ with a move to the CAF Champions League title holders, Al Ahly, after the midfielder impressed them during Pirates’ CCL march to the final last year.

One of Ahly’s board members is even reported to have confirmed that they have already begun negotiations with the midfielder about a possible move.

While Pirates have since denied that there are any discussions, the crew has also been informed that not only would the player favour a move to Europe, but that Pirates’ asking price could well scare Ahly off.

According to Siya sources, Pirates want around €2 million (R29m) for the 25-year-old if they are to let him move abroad, a price that Ahly are unlikely to put forward for the midfielder.

The crew have previously reported that there is interest in Manyisa from Europe, and it seems unlikely that he would opt to make the move to Egypt rather than hold out for a his dream move.

While Ahly are undoubtedly a huge team in Africa, and the continent’s most successful outfit, a move there from Pirates could be seen as a side­ways step for the Bafana Bafana international, especially given the fact that there are already European clubs keeping tabs on him.

However, despite the big asking price, Ahly did pay a reported $3.6 (R38m) for Flavio Amado back in 2005, so they are not adverse to spending big on players if they want to bring them into the club.
