Ball In Mbule’s Court As Chiefs Watch On…

Kaizer Chiefs will have to wait until after the Olympic games if they are to land in-demand star Sipho Mbule, although the Siya crew can confirm that Amakhosi have not yet made an approach.

As reported by the crew in edition 1215 of Soccer Laduma, Kaizer Chiefs have not made any official approach for 22-year-old midfield maestro Mbule as revealed by SuperSport United CEO Stan Matthews.

According to Matthews, even if Chiefs did make an approach for the man who has been called up to Molefi Ntseki’s Bafana Bafana squad, they would have to wait until after the 2021 Olympic Games in Tokyo, which takes place in July this year.

“We have never been contacted by Chiefs and we have numerous attractive options on Mbule, who will not be sold before the Olympics,” Matthews told the Siya crew at the time.

The crew also revealed that Mbule has an international buy-out clause that could see him leave Matsatsantsa if a European club trigger his release clause after the Olympics.

In the past, SuperSport have indicated that they are looking to sell Mbule to a European club before considering local interest.

It is for this very reason that the club turned down an offer for the in-form midfielder from Mamelodi Sundowns during the last transfer window.

Now, the ball ultimately lies in the hands, or rather at the feet of Mbule, who has an opportunity to market himself at the Olympics in three months’ time to secure a European move, and the failure to do so could see him return to Mzansi, where he could secure a move to one of the big three if they can match SuperSport’s evaluation of the prodigious talent.
