Midfielder George Maluleka's high-profile transfer from Kaizer Chiefs to Mamelodi Sundowns is destined for failure, according to former Amakhosi winger Junior Khanye.

Maluleka has signed a pre-contract with Masandawana, ahead of his move to the Chloorkop outfit next season, but Khanye reckons the transfer wasn't in the midfielder's best interest.

Khanye believes the 31-year-old will struggle to break into coach Pitso Mosimane's midfield, and that there were other more sinister motivations behind the switch.

"He is going to have to compete with Hlompho and Jali. I don't think he will be able to play under instruction at Sundowns," Khanye told iDiskiTV as per Phakaaathi.

"I don't think it was his idea to move there, the agent might have been involved. Maluleka might not play against Sundowns for Chiefs this season, this will kill Chiefs in the game the two sides will face each other.

"This move was to kill Chiefs but George will not get game time at Sundowns."
