Zimbabwean international Khama Billiat is set to become the highest paid footballer in the South African Premiership if he renews his contract which is set to expire in June 2018.
Mamelodi Sundowns are believed to have tabled a lucrative contract offer, which should see the player stay at the club for the next five years. According to KickOff.com, the club wants Billiat to stay until after his 30th birthday. KickOff.com reports:
Sundowns are ready to look after their prized assets and have moved swiftly on trying to retain the services of their star forward, who played an integral role in the club’s success in 2016. The 26-year-old’s current contract in set to expire at the end of next season, with his buyout clause believed to be over R25 million. However, it has been gathered that Sundowns’ new contract offer is also set to make the Zimbabwean international the highest-paid player in the PSL, with the length thereof stretching five years, up to 2021.
However, a number of football analysts feel that it is time for Billiat to move to Europe or any better league compared to Super Diski.
