Mamelodi Sundowns and Royal AM have entered the competition for Kaizer Chiefs top target Junior Mendieta of Stellenbosch FC
The Argentinian star has consistently performed well for Steve Barker’s team, so it is understandable why he has drawn interest from other teams.
Mendieta and Sibongiseni Mthethwa are reportedly the targets of Chiefs’ earlier this season bids, but they were turned down.
According to a previous article in The Citizen, Stellies were unable to part with the pair since they are crucial to their setup.
Yet as the big powers come knocking, Stellies recognize they can no longer hold on to their prized players, according to a source.
“Chiefs will have stiff competition from Sundowns and Royal AM, who are known for their bottomless wallets. Sundowns have also been asking about Mendieta.”
Mendieta, who turns 30 in June, is also thought to be of interest to Orlando Pirates and Sekhukhune United.
This other teams don’t have people who do the scouting for them, why are they running to grab players that kaizerchiefs are busy talking to them
