Cape Town - Cape Town City chairperson John Comitis has said that if Mamelodi Sundowns are serious about signing Lebohang Manyama they will have to table a R30m offer.

According to KickOff, the Brazilians are keen to lure the 26-year-old to Chloorkop after displaying fine form for the Citizens this season.

Manyama has already notched up three Player of the Months awards while also getting a Bafana Bafana call up in the recent FIFA international break.

“Nothing is happening at the moment, Manyama will be here at Cape Town City next season,” Comitis said.

“Sundowns must pay me R30 million if they want Manyama not R10 million, otherwise they must stop talking. I can also offer Sundowns R10 million for (Percy) Tau.

“I will not sell him (Manyama) to a local team, Manyama must play overseas.”

City face Chippa United in hopes of surpassing Kaizer Chiefs and Bidvest Wits on the Premiership log as they face Chippa United on Monday night.

Kick off is at 19:30.
