Mamelodi Sundowns star Ramahlwe Mphahlele’s future at the club remains in doubt after he was left out of the side’s squad for the trip to Setif this weekend.
Sundowns have traveled to Algeria for their Caf Champions League Group Stage tie but have done so without the their captain, reports IOL.
The 26-year-old is currently embroiled in talks over a new contract from the club with his current deal set to expire at the end of the month, with Kaizer Chiefs having reportedly made an offer to take the defender to the Naturena on a free transfer.
The Chiefs offer is allegedly far better the the initial terms offered by Sundowns, meaning that a switch to the Amakhosi may ultimately prove too lucrative to turn down. However Mphahlele is reportedly keen to remain at Chloorkop, if the Brazilians technical staff can meet his conditions.
Mphahlele made 27 appearances for Sundowns across all competitions this season.
