Mamelodi Sundowns on the Verge of Signing Junior Mendieta
Recent reports indicate that Mamelodi Sundowns are close to finalizing the signing of Junior Mendieta from Stellenbosch FC.
While rivals Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates were also rumored to have shown interest in Mendieta, it appears that Sundowns will secure his signature.
Sundowns’ Swift Action and Interest from Kaizer Chiefs
Mendieta’s potential move to Sundowns comes at a time when the club is reportedly preparing to part ways with midfielder Haashim Domingo due to a failure to reach an agreement on a new contract.
Sundowns wasted no time in pursuing a deal for Mendieta, approaching Stellenbosch to explore the possibility of securing the services of the talented player.
Kaizer Chiefs were initially linked with Mendieta, with reports suggesting their interest in the Argentine star has spanned two years.
Club sporting director Kaizer Motaung Junior publicly acknowledged their interest in the player, emphasizing that the coach’s input will guide their decision-making process.
Mendieta’s Release Clause and Sundowns’ Progress
It has been revealed that Mendieta has a release clause of R10 million at Stellenbosch.
This seemingly did not deter Sundowns, and as reported earlier this week, the deal has now reached its advanced stages.
The latest update from Unplayable indicates that Mendieta will join Sundowns on a three-year contract.
The imminent signing of Junior Mendieta by Mamelodi Sundowns is a significant development in the transfer market.
Sundowns’ proactive approach and willingness to meet Mendieta’s release clause demonstrate their determination to strengthen their squad.
This move will not only bolster Sundowns’ lineup but also serve as a blow to rival clubs, particularly Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates, who were also vying for Mendieta’s signature.
The three-year contract offered to Mendieta indicates the club’s commitment to his long-term potential.
As the deal progresses, football fans eagerly await official confirmation and look forward to witnessing Mendieta’s contributions to Sundowns’ success on the pitch.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
