Manyama Prefers Downs If City Let Him Leave

Lebogang Manyama Would Prefer Mamelodi Sundowns If He Leaves Cape Town City

By Soccer Laduma - Jul 28, 2017 02:31 PM
Lebogang Manyama’s signature is one of the most sought after in the country after his stellar 2016/17 campaign, but his future lies in the hands of Cape Town City.
 
 
The 26-year-old had the best season of his career with the Citizens as they lifted the Telkom Knockout and he bagged three awards – including Footballer of the Season – at the PSL Awards.
 
There has been talk that City has slapped a €1m (R14m) price tag on Manyama’s head should anyone want to buy him, while they have also stated publicly that they have no intention of letting him go.
 
Mamelodi Sundowns and Pitso Mosimane are known to be huge admirers of the attacking midfielder and are the only team in the country that could possibly consider meeting City’s huge valuation if they did want to make a move.
 
John Comitis has told the Siya crew that they’ve had no contact with Sundowns over the Bafana Bafana international, insisting that he’s ‘not for sale’, however it is thought that there was a meeting recently to discuss the player’s future.
 
According to Siya sources, Manyama has informed City that he is keen to take the next step in his football career, and given Sundowns’ success in the Champions League they would be his favoured destination if he did move on.
 
Also, with one eye on the World Cup as Bafana look to qualify for Russia 2018, it is believed that the former SuperSport United man is eager to make sure he keeps himself in Stuart Baxter’s line of sight.
 
Meanwhile, the crew have been informed that Manyama – who is a Gauteng local – has bought himself a new house in Johannesburg. 
 
 
Manyama has apparently attracted interest from countries such as Turkey, the United States and Egypt amongst others, but it is unknown at this point as to whether he fancies a move overseas or not.
 
The attacker does still have a contract with City until the end of the 2020/21 season, and ultimately his future lies in the hands of his club and they may wish to stand their ground and make sure he is still with the club going forward.

14 million is just a way of refusing the guy new opportunity somewhere. And know only sundowns can dish that kind of money.

Dows got millions in their successful year 2016/2017 but I don't understand why they have suddenly become so stingy ! They have targets but are not signing them. If Downs can't agree terms with free agents like Zuma and Zulu who Pitso publicly expressed his interest on , how can they afford under contract Manyama , Ngoma , Coetzee ? Motsepe is now feeling realities of running a football team not running a mine or selling vetkoek . Players want to play for Downs like they did 10 years ago with Chiefs but Downs cannot afford them eish nc nc nc nc ...
