Downs Want R4m For Defender?

Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to be looking for around R4 million for their young defender, Kwanda Mngonyama.

Mngonyama, who was with the South African U23 team for the Olympic Games in Brazil, is yet to know his future for the 2016/17 season.

The 22-year-old spent the 2015/16 season with Maritzburg United on loan from Sundowns. The Team of Choice is said to be keen on signing the player on a permanent deal, as coach Ernst Middendorp is looking to further strengthen his squad for the new Absa Premiership season.

Indications are that Mngonyama is not in coach Pitso Mosimane’s plans at Sundowns, so he could likely to be one of the players set to exit the Chloorkop outfit before the transfer window deadline at the end of the month.

The Durban-born player was linked with a move to SuperSport United, but the proposed move was called off, and a return to Maritzburg could be on the cards for the player.  

It is believes that Maritzburg tabled a R2 million offer in an attempt to sign Mngonyama from Sundowns, however, it is understood that the league champions want around double that amount.

Sources have revealed that Downs’ initial price tag for the defender was R5 million.

It remains to be seen if Sundowns will be prepared to lower their asking price for Mngonyama even further, or whether Maritzburg will offer more cash for the youngster before the closure of the transfer window.  

Poll

Do you think that Mamelodi Sundowns’ asking price of R37.2m for Khama Billiat is a fair value?
