The Siya crew reported at the weekend that Mamelodi Sundowns paid a transfer fee of around R45 million for at least seven of their signings. Now Soccer Laduma takes a look at the combined worth of all their latest additions.

The Brazilians completed 12 new signings ahead of the 2020/21 season, bolstering their squad with the acquisitions of Lesedi Kapinga, Peter Shalulile, Haashim Domingo, Gift Motupa, Aubrey Modiba, George Maluleka, Mothobi Mvala, Ricardo Goss, Khuliso Mudau, Kermit Erasmus, Grant Margeman and Jody February.

According to the figures on the German website, transfermarkt.com, they have a combined value of ±€5.9 million (±R115 million) and out of all the aforementioned 12 players, Modiba has the highest market value at €950 000 (±R18.4 million) - officially ranked as the joint-third most expensive player in the Brazilians’ set-up.

Modiba finally made the move to Sundowns from SuperSport United in September, this after Chloorkop-based club pursued the 25-year-old’s services for several months.

The versatile player is one of the most highly-rated in South Africa’s top-flight, experiencing illustrious form and a huge rise in his market value ever since moving to SuperSport in August of 2016.

Modiba’s market value rose from €250 000 (±R4.8 million) when he left Mpumalanga Black Aces, to €1.2 million (±R23.3 million) in February this year, though it saw a drop to €950 000 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
