Mamelodi Sundowns will definitely not stand in Siyanda Xulu's way during the next transfer window period when he attempts to impress European teams.
Xulu, who has already been invited by English Premiership side Arsenal as well as Spanish giants Barcelona where he had trials, has now attracted interest from Atletico Madrid who are keen to have a look at him next season. KickOff.com has been informed that the club will definitely allow the defender to go at the end of the season and will not stand in his way, like they did with striker Katlego Mphela. Xulu's business manager Paul Michel declined to deny or confirm anything but referred all queries to Downs. "I'm not in a position to say anything now. You can phone Sundowns and they will tell you what's happening." Downs spokesperson Alex Shakoane says they would only confirm when everything is in place, but at the moment he would not say anything. "I can't confirm speculation; I can only confirm once everything is done and at the moment there is nothing," he says. However, a source close to the club reveals to KickOff.com that Downs are prepared to sell their player during the off season.
