Cape Town - Former Bafana Bafana player, Bradley Carnell, says Orlando Pirates are pricing star player Oupa Manyisa’s out of a move abroad.

Soccer Laduma are reporting that several Russian clubs have enquired as to the availability of Manyisa, but Pirates’ asking price for the exciting midfielder could scupper any chances of a move abroad.

Pirates have reportedly set a R28 million price tag for Manyisa.

Carnell, who himself gained vital experience in the German Bundesliga with VFB Stuttgart, agreed that the price set by the Buccaneers is far too high.

Speaking to Soccer Laduma, Carnell confirmed what many local fans have been saying for some time, that Manyisa is a quality player and that a lower price tag is not an insult to Manyisa or his playing ability but Carnell is simply asking for a more realistic figure.

Carnell was of the opinion that despite the spending power of the Russian teams, no club would be interested in a player for such a fee. He added that even German second division sides would not be paying that much.

Carnell offered his opinion on a respectable price and came up with a figure of between R10million and R14 million.
