Transfer Twist: Biggest Target Shuns Amakhosi and Chooses PSL Rival


Football transfers in South Africa have taken an unexpected turn as Marumo Gallants striker Ranga Chivaviro rejected a lucrative offer from North African club Al Akhdar SC. This development has increased the chances of Kaizer Chiefs, a prominent South African football club, signing the highly sought-after striker, who has been linked with the club in recent weeks.

Kaizer Chiefs, known for their rich history and success in South African football, have been on the lookout for top talents to strengthen their squad. Marumo Gallants’ Ranga Chivaviro emerged as a potential transfer target, garnering significant attention from various clubs, including Al Akhdar SC from Libya.

Ranga Chivaviro Rejects Al Akhdar SC’s Offer

The North African club, Al Akhdar SC, made an enticing offer of approximately R3 million to secure Chivaviro’s services. The proposed deal consisted of a one-year contract with an option for another year. However, Chivaviro surprised many by declining the offer, opting for a different path in his career.

This rejection serves as a significant boost for Kaizer Chiefs, who have been monitoring the striker closely. By turning down the substantial financial offer, Chivaviro has potentially paved the way for a move to the South African club.

Al Akhdar SC’s Familiarity with Chivaviro

The news outlet “FARPost” broke the story, highlighting Al Akhdar SC’s familiarity with Ranga Chivaviro. The North African club had faced the talented striker twice in the CAF Confederation Cup, which likely played a role in their interest in acquiring him.

Chivaviro’s performances against Al Akhdar SC caught their attention, leading to the subsequent offer. However, the rejection from the striker raises questions about his intentions and his desire to explore opportunities within South Africa.

Khanyisa Mayo’s Potential Transfer

While the focus has been on Ranga Chivaviro, another transfer rumor has been circulating involving Khanyisa Mayo, a talented striker from Cape Town City.

Speculation suggested that Mayo might be considering a move to either Kaizer Chiefs or Mamelodi Sundowns, two powerhouse clubs in the Premier Soccer League (PSL).

Mayo’s Decision to Extend Stay in Cape Town

In a surprising twist, Khanyisa Mayo has chosen to extend his stay at Cape Town City until 2028. This decision has caught the attention of fans and pundits alike, especially considering the potential opportunities and exposure that a move to Kaizer Chiefs or Mamelodi Sundowns could have provided.

The Role of Mayo’s Father in the Transfer Decision

Sandile Ndlovu, a former Mamelodi Sundowns striker, believes that Mayo’s father, Patrick Mayo, played a crucial role in blocking the potential move to either Kaizer Chiefs or Mamelodi Sundowns. Ndlovu emphasizes the influence of having a father who has experience in the game and suggests that the elder Mayo provided valuable advice to his son regarding the career decision.
