Kaizer Chiefs target will cost R10 million!

“He is highly valued by the club. He can not come cheap. Kaizer Chiefs really want the player but the main problem has been Yanga’s asking price.” a source told SoccerLaduma.

“They want R10 million and nothing less than that. But Chiefs have been negotiating for about R6 million… Hence the deal is dragging.

“They want to make sure he moves now with some money coming in. His contract ends in June 2024 and soon he could be in a position to sign a pre-contract and they don’t want that to happen but at the same time they are asking for a big amount for his transfer.

“However, it’s understandable as they have invested a lot in him. So, R10 million seems nothing to them.”

In other news, Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Sandile Ndlovu believes Khanyisa Mayo’s dad was pivotal in blocking a move to neither Kaizer Chiefs nor Mamelodi Sundowns.

Mayo was tipped to join either side after a stellar campaign at Cape Town City.

The striker however decided to extend his stay in Cape Town until 2028!

According to Ndlovu, Patrick Mayo would have played a major role in his son’s career decision…

Mayo Snr blocked Chiefs and Sundowns move?

“If you have a father who played the game, you will never make the same mistakes your father did.” Ndlovu told KickOff regarding the Kaizer Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns linked man.

“It’s clear the advice came from the father even if he was my son, I would have said good move.

“As for the three-year deal. I think it was proposed by Cape Town City, they wanted to be secured.

“The more he plays for Bafana the more Cape Town City stands to sell him at the right price. Next season he will be worth more. Remember football is a business.

“At this stage, it could have been difficult for him to choose between Kaizer Chiefs, Sundowns and Pirates.”
