'Manyisa price tag ridiculous'

2014-04-24 00:00

CAPE TOWN — The €2 million (R29 million) price tag slapped on Orlando Pirates midfielder Oupa ‘Ace’ Manyisa is a “ridiculous” amount, according to one of South Africa’s top agents.

According to Soccer Laduma, Egyptian giants Al Ahly are reportedly interested in adding the Bafana Bafana star to their fold in the next transfer window after seeing him in action during this year’s Caf Champions League.

However, the asking price is sure to scare off the eight-time Caf Champions League winners — as well as any possible European suitors who may be interested in landing a deal with the 25-year-old.

If Al Ahly did sign Manyisa, he would be the first player from South Africa to wear the red kit of the Cairo-based side.

“Manyisa should be priced in the region of €750 000 (R11 million),” according to the agent.

In January, Andile Jali left the Buccaneers for Belgian club, KV Oostende, for an estimated €1 million (R14,5 million).
