While most people are already looking forward to the weekend, this could prove to be the longest weekend in the career of MamelodiSundowns ace Tiyani Mabunda.
After weeks of speculation, Mabunda will finally know his fate on Monday.
He has been linked with a move away from Chlorkop after falling out of favour with the coaches since the first of January but nothing materialized.
According to a new report in Soccer Laduma, Sundowns technical team decide on Mabunda's fate this weekend and release their verdict on Monday.
If they decide to let him walk on the plank, it will be a huge blow to Mabunda as the transfer window closes on 15 February.
Mabunda was previously linked with loan moves to Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila and Moroka Swallows back in October but he openly stated that he wanted to stay at Sundowns and fight for his place in the team.
He has not featured in any game for Sundowns so far this season and moving to a new club could resuscitate his ailing career.
Benni McCarthy is said to want him at AmaZulu but nothing concrete has been established.
McCarthy has already spoken about adding depth to his squad as he builds a strong team for next season.
Mabunda's contract at Sundowns runs till the end of the year. But Masandawana have the option of renewing it by a further two years according to a clause in the contract.
