Downs, Pirates target Mexican midfielder

Transfer News on Wednesday revealed AmaTuks had recruited Franco and his compatriot Luigiana on three-year deals.

However, Franco has since caught the attention of the two Absa Premiership giants after playing against them in friendlies during the FIFA international break.

According to a source close to the 25-year-old, both clubs have enquired about his services.

"He certainly does not look like he will stay long in the NFD," says the source.

"Both Sundowns and Pirates have expressed interest.

"But it's too early to commit much with information. Let's just wait and see."
