Mamelodi Sundowns president Patrice Motsepe has stepped in to help make Percy Tau’s dream of playing overseas a reality.
According to a statement released by Sundowns, Motsepe has instructed the club to finalise a deal for Tau to join English Premier League club Brighton Hove & Albion.
Tau, who is determined to secure a move to Europe, has not reported for pre-season training in an attempt to force a move in the current transfer window. The reigning Footballer of the Season has been backed by many in the country to be successful in Europe.
Brighton are said to have tabled an offer in the region of R50 million to get the CAF Champions League winner on their books for the coming season.
The statement released by Sundowns reads: “Mamelodi Sundowns is pleased to announce that the president of Mamelodi Sundowns Dr. Patrice Motsepe gave instructions to the management to finalise the deal with Brighton & Hove Albion FC after Percy Tau and his agent came to see him and apologised for disclosing confidential information to the media and for Percy Tau not reporting for training.”
