That form has seen some top clubs both locally and abroad show a keen interest in the services of Mabasa. In the DStv Premiership, champions Mamelodi Sundowns are touted as long-term admirers of the player. Abroad, it has been revealed that Romanian giants FCSB are interested in signing the player as well. This would see him become teammates with ex-Kaizer Chiefs defender Siyabonga Ngezana who is enjoying the form of his life. Throughout this period, it has been thought that Pirates are also willing to cash in on the striker while he is still hot!

Interest in Mabasa

But now, according to Soccer-Laduma, Pirates are looking to offer Mabasa a massive new deal! This in the hope that it will help keep away the advances of the likes of Sundowns and overseas interest and see him stay at the club. It is further suggested that his new terms could make him one the highest paid players in the local league. 

But, with the new deal, Pirates are stilling willing to sell Mabasa. This provided the buying club matches the new R50 million buyout clause!

Pirates willing sell for R50 million

“It’s not just an improved contract but also with a buyout clause of R50 million. That means whichever team wants him (Mabasa) have to meet Pirates’ demands, they won’t let him go for cheap. He is the best striker currently and with interest from local teams as well as Europe it’s only fair to have that buy out clause,” said the source to the publication. 

This is a brilliant place to be in for both Mabasa and Pirates. The Striker gets a massive salary increase, while the club rest assured that they can likely only lose him abroad.
