Sundowns Open Talks For Ajax Defender
Mamelodi Sundowns Open Talks For Ajax Cape Town Defender
Mamelodi Sundowns have officially approached Ajax Cape Town for their young defender and negotiations have been initiated.
As reported by Soccer Laduma earlier this year, Sundowns tabled an offer to the Urban Warriors for the services of Rivaldo Coetzee.
The Bafana Bafana defender has been a wanted man by the Brazilians for quite some time now and Sundowns have officially taken one step further in their pursuit of the player.
As reported in this week’s edition of Soccer Laduma, according to a source within the Brazilians’ camp, the two parties have officially begun talks and both clubs are said to be keen on concluding a transfer for the 20-year-old.
Coetzee’s current contract with Ajax is set to expire at the end of the 2016/17 campaign, however, the club has an added two-year option on the player’s deal.
Indications are that Ajax will look to exercise the option and subsequently cash in on the player once the transfer is concluded.
However, like all high-profile signings, the talks and negotiations are set to continue over the next two months, as all three parties; the player’s camp, the selling club and the buying club will have to agree to the terms and conditions of a deal before the transfer can be concluded.
