Orlando Pirates slapped Oupa ‘Ace’ Manyisa with a R28.5 million price tag. That turned out to be a tad overboard as many people within the South African football fraternity are now bemoaning that amount.
Then the agents suggested that Oupa should rather be worth at least R11 million.
So realistically what should a club in Europe pay for the services of Ace? What would be the fair price for this South African maestro.
No doubt he is a talent and half, but at 25-years-old it’s unlikely that Manyisa will play top flight European football for anything over 9-10 million... in South African Rands!
Do you think this is a fair price for Manyisa?
