Chiefs To Lose Out On Mzansi’s Hottest Talent?

Mamelodi Sundowns have made major strides in their bid to land one of the most sought-after talents in Mzansi.

As revealed by the Siya crew last year, Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns, an unnamed team in the UAE and Orlando Pirates are all in a heated race to land Bafana Bafana international, Teboho Mokoena.

“I can confirm that while the Big Three have expressed interest in the player, I have also received an incred­ible offer from a club in the United Arab Emirates, which is something that could be really fantastic for both Tebza and the club,” SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews told the Siya crew in part last year in November.

It was subsequently reported last week that the Brazilians have tabled a tempting offer in the region of R16 million, with the indication that players could be added to the deal in order to secure their long-term target.

In addition, it was reported that Chiefs are still in the picture, with a faction of the SuperSport hierarchy leaning towards selling to Amakhosi in a bid to facilitate a commercial relationship between the two sides.

However, the Chloorkop-based side has now upped the ante!

The latest news reaching the Siya crew is that the Downs have taken a step closer to snapping up the sought-after star, strengthening their position over Chiefs in the hotly contested race for his signature.

Should the two clubs agree on terms, which is now likely given the latest development, then Sundowns will be given the green light to open discussions over personal terms with the player.

Mokoena is currently one of the hottest properties in Mzansi, with the expectation that Sundowns could table a lucrative offer that would see the 24-year-old earn a significant increase on his current package. 

If all goes according to plan, a deal is expected to be concluded in the current transfer window; however, with 20 days to go before the window slams shut, more twists are predicted.
