Sundowns Table Big Money To Try And Keep Billiat

Mamelodi Sundowns Are Trying One Last Time To Hold On To Khama Billiat

By Soccer Laduma - May 30, 2018 10:01 AM

Mamelodi Sundowns are looking at trying one last time to hold on to the services of Khama Billiat, with exactly one month to go before he becomes a free agent.

Billiat’s current deal with Sundowns will expire on June 30 this year, and the Zimbabwean international has already been linked with several outfits, both locally and abroad.

However, as reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, Masandawana have not given up on trying to keep the 27-year-old at the club, with sources revealing to the Siya crew that the club has offered Billiat a lucrative deal.

According to the source, Sundowns offered the player over R5 million per annum, which includes bonuses and signing on fees.

Billiat has been influential to the success of the Chloorkop-based side and the club is eager to keep them in their plans for the new season, as they defend their Absa Premiership title and continue their fight in the CAF Champions League.

With Percy Tau also strongly linked with a move abroad, indications are that Sundowns want to avoid losing two of their key players at the same time and have firstly upped the ante in trying to keep Billiat at the club.

@alizebucs1986 Sundowns is about competing and winning the League , ACL and competing in Club world cup with Ronaldo s of this world, (this also you will not understand) hence they are not eager to release their best players that s what ambitious teams are doing OK, hope you understand..

@Pathology clearly u dont get my Point,Sundunu have lost Millions of Rands for Players who left for Free nd they knew all along those players are not happy then y not sell them earlier than wait for their Contracts to expire nd loose them for Free? How much did Sundowns Buy Billiat For From Ajax? Do u think if he leave now Dunusa wont loose out! Dont u think they could have forced a deal to happen back in January to gain some few Rands beacuse they knew all along by that time that Billiat wants to Leave,now they r so Desperate not go loose him they will end up giving him what they were not preapared to give him! Do u understand what i mean here?

@Vharazipi Lol stop being emotional wena , Pitso loves Billiat but unfortunately for Billiat he did not get offers from EPL which is not Pitso problem..And Pitso is not forcing him to do anything , He values him which is why he does not want to lose him. Billiat is free to do anything even to go to EPL if sit down kid !!

@alizebucs1986 So you agree with me when i say you want them to be released for free..Sundowns are not fighting to keep Billiat because of what you are saying. Billiat is very good player an asset to any team so they fighting to keep a player that they feel will add value in the team . By the way all the player s become free the contract expires and this is not unique to Sundowns it happen every where and it will happen to Tau as well...so relax baba... "How much did Dunu pay to get Tau" clearly u are not clued up about the processes of developing a player that i will leave there ...

You must treat foreign players with respect but I don't think they understand your point when you talk. Tau must go overseas.and Billiat must sign a new long contract with you sundowns. You want to show people that Tau is more brilliant than khama Billiat. So what is Billiat thinking when you talk like a toddler. He think very valued that way. To me that is really and completely nonsense

Billiat must push for overseas or join a club that values you better with respect. Pitso don't value Billiat but wanted to use him like a toilet paper. How can a father like Pitso open his mouth saying we want Tau to represent us in EPL while forcing Billiat to represent Zimbabwe in psl what respect are you trying to show Zimbabweans in South Africa or in Zimbabwe. You don't love Billiat and if he can understand your point he will go even to Egypt or at Chiefs or pirates just to show you that you didn't go to school like him

So Pitso is happy to keep Billiat at Sundowns and let Tau go overseas.I am not happy about your point Pitso. Biliat is from Zimbabwe and must remain in South Africa not overseas which means when Zimbabwean players arrive in South Africa you think they are already in Europe. You take Billiat for granted and you sound taking him cheap like a toilet paper

@mabenamusa4, even Kaizer failed to sell CHABALALA during his time @ chiefs. Why should they blame Motsepe?

As far as I know no team have come out and say they want billiat but people are busy labelling sundowns by all sots of name for refusing to sell billiat; even bobby motaung said that wouldn't wait until billiat is free if they wanted him. He said they d approach downs like they did with castro

Well it seems like our beloved Chiefs will again SETTLE for cheap free agents. Motsepe is determined to use his billions to ensure that we do not reclaim the glory.

If Billiat can decide to stay at dunusa fc for the up coming season he should kiss his dream of playing abroad goodbye because now is the right time for him to make a move considering his age,its now or never for him....

This big money u are tabling for Billiat will destabilize your team. Other players will be extremely unhappy.
