The representative of Bradley Grobler has confirmed that the striker’s immediate future will indeed be up for discussion in the near future.
The 31-year-old striker, who is in great goalscoring form, has been linked to both Orlando Pirates and Mamelodi Sundowns in the past weeks.
SuperSport United’s CEO, Stan Matthews confirmed to local media in July this year that, should SuperSport win a trophy and be in a good league position by January 2020, the transfer window will be there for Grobler, should he want another challenge.
"It’s in the players’ hands. Bradley knows... help us win another trophy and get us to January in a nice solid position, then that’s great for him,” Matthews said after Grobler’s link with Pirates in the previous transfer window.
Now, as he heads into yet another cup final with Matsatsantsa, a win on the weekend could possibly open the door for a move to either Sundowns or Pirates in the future, should these clubs look to approach SuperSport in the upcoming transfer window.
Although, with Grobler already on a new three-year deal with SuperSport, the club will ultimately be left to make the final decision about his immediate future.
However, if Matthews’ previous comments are anything to go by, indications are that SuperSport will be open to offers for his services. Although, the result this weekend and their position in January could have a big effect on the club’s decision.
Speaking to the Siya crew, the player’s representative, Sean Roberts confirmed that while Grobler remains focused on helping SuperSport win the MTN8 trophy and progress in the league, his immediate future will be discussed in January.
“Bradley is a great professional and right now, he is 100% focused on SuperSport United. He is in fine form and his number one priority is to help the team. While he is committed to the club and honours his contract, it has been no secret that the player would like a new challenge in the future,” Roberts said.
“There has been interest from both Pirates and Sundowns in the past transfer window, however, the timing was off. If they are still interested in him, it’s up to these clubs to make an offer for the player in January and thereafter it will be for SuperSport to decide.
“Again, while he is still contracted to the club, the player remains completely focused and committed to SuperSport and his hunger and passion on the football pitch has proven that,” he concluded.
