Sundowns Not Giving Up On Manyama!

Mamelodi Sundowns Not Giving Up On Lebogang Manyama!

By Soccer Laduma - Aug 30, 2017 10:20 AM

Mamelodi Sundowns have not given up on their pursuit to land the signature of Lebogang Manyama, despite Cape Town City currently negotiating a transfer for the player to Europe.

It was reported earlier today that City chairman, John Comitis, dropped his asking price for Manyama, as talks between the club and Turkish outfit, Atiker Konyaspor is believed to be heating up.

According to Siya sources, Comitis dropped his €1 million (±R15.5m) asking price to €800 000 (+/-R12.4m), which is understood to be the main stumbling block in concluding a transfer for Manyama’s services.

However, the Siya crew has since been informed by a reliable source that Masandawana have not given up their hope of luring the 26-year-old to the Chloorkop-based club and indications are that the Brazilians are hoping to conclude a deal for the player in the final minutes of the current July/August transfer window period.

As things stand, City are in favour of selling the player to Europe rather than losing his services to one of their Premier Soccer League rivals.

Although with the player keen on a move away from the Mother City-based club, City could look to sell Manyama to the highest bidder in the PSL, as to avoid having a disgruntled player in the squad when the window closes on August, 31.

The 26-year-old was recently dropped from Head Coach Benni McCarthy’s squad when City claimed a 1-0 win over Bidvest Wits in the first leg of the MTN8 semi-finals. It was thereafter revealed that the reason for Manyama’s absence was because of a lack of commitment shown in training over the past few weeks.
