Orlando Pirates have taken the lead for this huge Kaizer Chiefs Bafana Bafana target. Watch out, Amakhosi, the Bucs are serious!
The latest red-hot transfer news sees the Bucs keen to steal Sibongiseni Mthethwa.
Look out Amakhosi, the Bucs are serious about this signing with management willing to offer several players.
PIRATES WILLING TO OFFER PLAYERS FOR CHIEFS TARGET MTHETHWA
Initially, talks had stalled with the Bafana Bafana midfielder having offers from Chiefs. Furthermore, potential overseas offers are also on the cards for Mthethwa.
“They told him about potential moves to Kaizer Chiefs and overseas and that is when he was not so sure about going to Pirates considering the competition there. That is when the Pirates deal got stalled because they were unsure who to speak to anymore, and Stellies were also not too keen on losing him,” the source stated on Phakaaati.

However, now things have changed and Pirates are keen to try lure Mthethwa to Mayfair.
“But I heard Pirates will re-open negotiations and add a few players as part of the deal to get Stellies to release their best player. Mthethwa has been giving solid performances for Stellies since the season started and has shown some good leadership qualities,” he added.
Imagine Mthethwa joining the likes of Monnapule Saleng, Miguel Timm and Thembinkosi Lorch.
This is now possible with Bucs management looking to ensure depth across the squad ahead of their return to the CAF Champions League.
DEPTH KEY FOR BUCS THIS SEASON
The Bucs have two trophies to defend and another two to fight for.
They have an MTN8 and Nedbank Cup to defend. Moreover, they want to compete with Mamelodi Sundowns for the DStv Premiership and to go as far as possible in the CAFCL. Therefore, they will need to ensure depth in all positions. This is something Jose Riveiro and Bucs management are well aware of.
