Comitis Drops Asking Price For Manyama
John Comitis Drops Asking Price For Lebogang Manyama As Europe Negotiations Close In
With just two days to go before the July/August transfer window closes shut on August, 31, Cape Town City chairman, John Comitis is believed to have since dropped his asking price for the services of Lebogang Manyama.
As reported over the past few weeks on Soccer Laduma, City could be without the services of their star player, Manyama, with the player heavily linked with an exit from the Mother City-based club.
CAF Champions League winners, Mamelodi Sundowns are keen on adding the player to their roster for the new 2017/18 campaign, however, as things stand, European-outfit, Kanyaspor are currently leading the race for the player's signature as the Turks are believed to be currently locked in negotiations with City.
However, as previously revealed by the Siya crew, City have placed a €1 million (±R15.5m) price tag on Manyama’s services following the interest from Europe, however, it has since been revealed to the crew by a reliable source that the club’s chairman has since dropped his asking price to €800 000 (+/-R12.4m).
Following the escalating talk about the player’s immediate future, the 26-year-old has since been dropped from Head Coach Benni McCarthy’s squad, with the 39-year-old revealing that the player is not giving 100% in training as it is no secret that he is keen on a move away from the 2016 Telkom Knockout champions.
Now, it remains to be seen whether a move to Turkey will materialise for the player in the coming days or if Sundowns will look to make a last minute swoop for the 2016/17 PSL Footballer Of The Season.
