Patrice Motsepe admits he would be willing to sell not only Keagan Dolly but also Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro, provided interest in their services translate into offers that make sense.
The Mamelodi Sundowns chairman and mining magnate confirmed today that besides Dolly, the two other thirds of ‘CBD’ have also attracted transfer interest and will be sold if suitable offers are received.
“It's not just Keagan, there may be two other players that may have to go [Khama Billiat and Leonardo Castro]. And we are looking at bringing in two others,” Motsepe said from Sandton Sun Hotel.
Part of the official statement Sundowns released to the media also states that the club have already made provisions for the trio’s exit.
“Mamelodi Sundowns specifically brought Sibusiso Vilakazi, Yannick Zakri and Thapelo Morena to the club to replace Keagan Dolly and a few other players that we expect to release to other European clubs,” the statement said.
“We expect as part of our 10-year plan to release some of our players to top European clubs but also to develop quality players at our Academy and to continue bringing the best South African, African and South American players to the club.”
When questioned about the rumour that Anthony Laffor is being lined up by Kaizer Chiefs, the Sundowns boss kept it vague.
“If any player has opportunities to leave, progress in their careers and earn more money, we should let them leave,” was his response.
