Kaizer Chiefs have officially submitted a bid for one of SuperSport United‘s most sought after star in the current transfer window.
Speaking to Gagasi FM on Friday, Mike Makaab confirmed that Amakhosi have tabled an offer for midfielder Sipho Mbule.
At this stage, it’s unclear how much Chiefs put on the table for the services of Mbule, who is still contracted to Matsatsantsa.
Just a week ago, Mamelodi Sundowns were reported to have made huge strides in their pursuit for Mbule.
However, Makaab dismissed those reports, and the latest developments could mean Chiefs are well ahead of Sundowns in the race for Mbule.
In addition, weekend reports suggested that Mbule would prefer to join Chiefs over Sundowns, making the story even more intriguing.
In July 2021, reports of Mbule being close to joining Chiefs made the headlines, but nothing came out of those reports as SuperSport United didn’t receive any firm offers for the midfielder’s services.
