The Mamelodi Sundowns owner is in the running for the highest seat on the continent against the likes of Ivory Coast’s Jacques Anouma‚ Senegal’s Augustin Senghor and Mauritania’s Ahmed Yahya.

Now, according to Kenyan journalist Francis Gaitho of Kenya Football, Motsepe’s bid was boosted after FIFA President Infantino brokered an agreement which will see Senghor and Yahya step down their respective bids in support of Patrice Motsepe, with both candidates being offered vice president roles.

According to Gaitho, Souleymane Waberi of Djibouti will take up the third vice president spot. A confidential memorandum of understanding is set to be signed in Rabat, Morocco on Tuesday.

All indications are that Motsepe is now the front runner for the elections, which are set to take place on March 12.

Despite attempts by the crew to contact FIFA on the matter, there was no response at the time of publish.

Motsepe, who recently rolled out his 10-point manifesto, revealed that his eldest son Thlopie will be his successor at Mamelodi Sundowns if he is to succeed in his bid to occupy the CAF hot seat.
