Sundowns challenge Chiefs to a race to sign maart.

News circulating around social media platform is that DSTV Premiership defending champions Mamelodi Sundowns have expressed an interest in yet another Kaizer Chiefs transfer target. You may recall coming across certain reports that Sekhukhune United rising star Yusuf Maart has been identified as a potential priority target for Amakhosi in the coming transfer window.

The former Orlando Pirates development player was unable to make an impact at the Buccaneers but has managed to resurrect his playing career at the topflight newbies, and has since gone on to establish himself in the Bafana set-up, while catching the eye of some of Mzansi’s top scouts including Kaizer Chiefs and now the pog leaders Mamelodi Sundowns.

With the player being eyed up by the Naturena-based side, reports we read have indicated that Mamelodi Sundowns have also expressed an interest in the 26-year-old as they continue to strengthen their squad to compete at the highest level, especially in the CAF Champions League competition.

It is understood that with Mamelodi Sundowns' financial muscle, the Chloorkop-based club could leapfrog kaizer Chiefs with a better and more convincing offer in the race for the player's service next year. However, at this stage in time, it remains unclear whether Babina Noko are willing to sell one of the club's key players given that they are still trying to settle in, in the top-flight division.

Yusuf Maart led Sekhukhune United in their GladAfrica Championship title-winning season and has been a regular in Hugo Broos’ new-look Bafana side, and it now seems as though a move to one of the PSL giants could be on the cards.

It is not the first time that Mamelodi Sundowns have challenged Kaizer Chiefs on a race for a signature of a major star given their previous battles of Teboho Mokoena, Sipho Mbule and the defender of the season Njabulo Ngcobo whom Kaizer Chiefs got in the end.
