Mahlonoko is right now a available on after as of late going separate ways with Pirates, where he turned into the club's most youthful ever debutant at 16 years old years and 11 months back in August 2018.

Unfortunately, the 18-year-old proceeded to procure only 11 minutes across three substitute appearances for the club before being sent to their feeder group in the ABC Motsepe League Pele FC in December a year ago. 

The midfielder hailing from Vaal has since been connected to both Baroka FC and Maritzburg United, yet we have gathered that the young man has gotten a challenge to go to preliminaries with Atletico Madrid in Spain.

This is after he turned out in the Gauteng U-17 Future Champs competition, in which a few unfamiliar based clubs took an interest and detected his ability. 

As indicated by sources near his undertakings, Mahlonoko was expected to experience preliminaries with Atletico in May this year. 

“This invitation came through in March but the trip didn’t materialise because of the travel restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic,” said the source.

“New arrangements are now being made to secure the boy's trip to Spain.”

Mohlonoko's agent Keke Mokoena declined to remark about her young midfielder's future just as the invitation from the La Liga outfit. 

“At this moment, I am not in a good position to discuss my client’s future in the media. When the time is right, I will be available to comment about him.”
