Bongani Zungu could well be on the move at the end of the season, and there’s thought to be interest from bigger clubs in France as well as in Spain, after a LaLiga move previously broke down.
The 27-year-old has gone from strength-to-strength as he moved to Vitoria de Guimaraes from Mamelodi Sundowns and then from Portugal to Ligue 1 with Amiens, and he was on the verge of making a switch to Mallorca in LaLiga in January until the plug got pulled on the deal at the last minute.
Now, as he nears the last year of his contract, there will be plenty of talk about the Bafana Bafana international’s future, and where he will be playing his football when the 2020/21 season rolls around.
As reported in the latest issue of Soccer Laduma, several clubs in France have been continually impressed with Zungu’s performances, while Spain also remains an option following some big showings over the course of the season so far.
As explained, Mallorca may well come back in for Zungu having identified him as a target back in January, and even agreed a transfer fee, but the move fell through at the last minute.
It had been thought that the midfield man would see his contract in France expire at the end of the current season, though it has now been confirmed that that is not the case, with his deal coming up at the end of the 2020/21 season.
With that in mind, Amiens may well be open to the idea of selling Zungu at the end of the current campaign rather than risk losing him for a cut-price fee in January or for free at the end of next season.
