Cheque Books To Open For Katsande?

Willard Katsande’s future at Kaizer Chiefs remains uncertain, and the Siya crew has previously reported that rivals Orlando Pirates have shown an interest.

The 33-year-old Zimbabwean does still have one year to run on his Amakhosi contract, giving the club an option to cash-in on his signature, although his age would play a big role in his price tag.

Coach Ernst Middendorp this week gave the biggest hint yet that the player may not have a place in his squad after he left him out of the team for a third consecutive game – and he confirmed it wasn’t due to an injury. It is also believed the player isn’t seeing eye to eye with the technical team. 

Using German website transfermarkt.com, the Siya crew determined Katsande’s current value, which is around R10.3 million. But this figure doesn’t take into account supply and demand at the moment or over the years. It’s unlikely then that Chiefs would fetch an amount in that region given the status of his contract and his age. A mutual termination or a potential swap deal is more likely.  

The site also ranks the midfield workhorse seventh among his Chiefs counterparts in terms of value – those figures also aren’t regulated by the club’s specific transfer market climate, but just based on their algorithm. 

In what looks likely to be yet another barren season, should Amakhosi fail to win the Nedbank Cup, you can expect Chiefs to promise more wholesale changes – with Katsande among the casualties.

Transfermarkt ranks these six Chiefs players above Katsande in value:

  • Khama Billiat – around R32m
  • Itumeleng Khune – just over R20m
  • George Maluleka – at R12.8m
  • Ramahlwe Mphahlele – also at R12.8m
  • Daniel Cardoso – at R12m
  • Daniel Akpeyi – around R11.2m
