Sundowns' Moroccan Defender Conundrum Explained.
Mamelodi Sundowns have an interest in acquiring the services of the Moroccan defender Abdelmounaim Boutouil; nevertheless, the club is confronted with a number of obstacles and must make a significant decision over whether or not to wait.
The Siya team has been informed that the left-sided center back, who has been mentioned as a possible successor for the departed Ricardo Nascimento, has one more year left on his contract with Moroccan giants Raja Casablanca. Ricardo Nascimento left the club earlier this year.
The information that was acquired by Soccer Laduma suggests that the Sundowns could delay making a move until the month of January, or perhaps wait until the conclusion of the season when he becomes a free agency, because the asking price for a player who is in the final year of his contract is a bit too high.
In light of the fact that there is still one more year left on the player's contract, it is common knowledge that Raja are open to cashing in on the player.
Boutouil was given to SC Mohammedia on loan with the option to buy, however it is currently unknown if the club has made a bid to Raja to acquire him on a permanent basis. The loan came with an option to buy.
Once the Sundowns have returned for preseason training, which begins on Thursday, July 30, they will make a final determination regarding the player.
Because he is in the final year of his contract, the club is considering making a move for him in the month of January. "It's possible that we won't be able to get him until January unless we wait for him to become available on a free," a reliable source said to the Siya crew.
"He is quite good, but the difficulty is that they want a significant amount of money. Keep in mind that they are conducting business in dollars.
