Pirates preparing offer for Monare


KickOff.com has learnt that Orlando Pirates have made contact with Bidvest Wits regarding the services of midfielder Thabang Monare.

Monare is among the Wits stars that will leave the club before it relocates to Limpopo next season, provided the PSL approves its status sale to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzhivhandila.

As already confirmed by this website, Pirates are expected to unveil both Thulani Hlatshwayo and Deon Hotto at the end of the season after agreeing terms for their transfer from The Clever Boys.

The Buccaneers wanted to sign Monare before the Secunda-born midfielder joined Wits from Jomo Cosmos back in 2016.
