DStv Premiership giants Mamelodi Sundowns have provided an update on their negotiations with Egyptian club Al Ahly regarding the transfer of Gaston Sirino.
SIRINO IS LOOKING TO LEAVE CHLOORKOP
The Uruguayan is looking to leave Chloorkop to reunite with former coach Pitso Mosimane in Cairo.
On Monday, Sundowns updated their supporters on the latest developments via their official website and social media accounts.
The statement read:
Mamelodi Sundowns FC today announced that it has terminated discussions with Al Ahly SC as the clubs are too far from each other on the transfer fee for Gaston Sirino.
The good relations between the President of Al Ahly, Mr. Mahmoud El Khatib, and the President of Mamelodi Sundowns Dr. Patrice Motsepe will continue the good relations between Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly but there is no point or purpose in continuing the discussions on Gaston Sirino.
Mamelodi Sundowns will continue releasing players to European, African and other football countries like it did for Percy Tau, Keagan Dolly, Bongani Zungu, Ivorian international Siaka Tiéné, and other players but the transfer fee must be competitive as Mamelodi Sundowns is consistently paying high internationally competitive transfer fees for the players that it acquires.
Gaston Sirino must now focus on his football and compete for a starting position at Mamelodi Sundowns.
SUNDOWNS ARE NEXT IN ACTION ON JANUARY 2
Sundowns are next in action on Saturday, January 2 in a mouth-watering clash against Orlando Pirates at Loftus Versfeld at 15:30.
At the festive season break, Sundowns are currently top of the DStv Premiership standings with 18 points after just eight matches.
