Monnapule Saleng, an Orlando Pirates star who was cut by the Bucs, is having trouble getting off to a good start this time around.
Even though he’s having trouble getting started.Will the Buccaneers be tempted to sell, and what is the right price?
Both Danish team Odense and Ligue 1 powerhouse Monaco are said to have shown interest in Saleng.
Perhaps this is the ideal time to sell if the Buccaneers board can secure an offer exceeding €3 million (roughly R60 million), which is the amount that has been mentioned in the local media in recent weeks.
He will never be more valuable than he is right now, and those dollars could be wisely reinvested in local talent. In a bidding war, perhaps they could extract even more from affluent European clubs.
Monnapule Saleng joined Orlando Pirates in July 2021, but spent the 2021–22 season on loan at Moroka Swallows, where he scored twice in 22 league appearances.
He returned to Pirates for the 2022–23 season, where he became a first-team regular, scoring five goals in eight matches in the opening half of the season.
