The DC’s decision left Torrealba a free agent and the striker, who has returned to his home country to attend the burial of his mother-in-law, was considering a move to either Armina Bielefeld in Germany or Kaizer Chiefs.
However, now, in view of Sundowns move, the player will have to put his plans on hold until the matter is resolved.
The Brazilians are maintaining that the player has valid contract with the Chloorkop-based outfit in terms of the extension, the validity of which is now being contested.
PSL prosecutor Zola Majavu confirmed yesterday that his office has received Sundowns appeal.
“I am not yet sure about the date of sitting for the appeal. It definitely won’t be this week or the next as cases like this take time to process.”
