Kaizer Chiefs have finally put the Mbule transfer saga to rest.
According to the latest reports, Kaizer Chiefs and Sipho Mbule transfer saga appears to be nearing an end.
Chiefs are said to be making significant progress in their negotiations with SuperSport United for Mbule’s services.
Transfer rumors linking Mbule to a big-money move away from SuperSport dominated the previous transfer window. With almost every new report, the lead in securing his signature changed hands between Chiefs and Mamelodi Sundowns. SuperSport had also made no secret of their desire to sell the player to a foreign club rather than one of their two local rivals.
All of those rumors were ultimately unfounded, as Mbule remained at SuperSport, as he promised in one of his Instagram stories at the time.
Despite the fact that both Matsatsantsa CEO Stan Matthews and Mbule’s representatives have stated their preference to sell the midfielder overseas, the midfielder has yet to decide between Chiefs and Sundowns.
Mbule had been linked with a move to Chiefs, where he would be given more game time than at Sundowns, according to previous reports. His agent, Mike Makaab, confirmed on Gagasi FM the following week that his player was of interest to Chiefs, before claiming that he had already received an official offer from the Glamour Boys for the former South African junior international’s services.
Chiefs are believed to be in the final stages of completing a deal with SuperSport for Mbule during the current January transfer window, according to the most recent report, which came out on Wednesday morning! It may appear to have appeared out of nowhere, but if you look at all of the previous updates, you’ll notice a steady build-up.
If Chiefs can finalize this deal and get Mbule to Naturena in January, it will be considered a major coup. They also appear to have a clear path to him, with Sundowns preparing to announce Teboho Mokoena’s arrival. What do you think SuperSport will do if they lose both of their key midfielders in the same transfer window?
