KickOff.com has identified some of the reasons which could push or lure Kaizer Chiefs into selling Khama Billiat to his former club, Mamelodi Sundowns.
- With the confirmation of the Tshwane outfits’ interest coming this week, this would potentially have further affected the players’ psychological state, despite Chiefs saying otherwise.
- It is no secret that Downs have the financial resources to appease Billiat, but they also have a football model that previously suited him and still would now.
- A half-present Billiat would be of little use to The Glamour Boys’ quest to run a 30-game marathon to their full potential, while the right purchase offer could be of more worth for the club.
- Selling Billiat at a reported R15-million fee would be good business after he arrived on a free, and it would also cover the losses incurred of his pay-check over the past year while still making a profit.
- Chiefs’ opening two results of the season were both managed without the services of the former Caf Player of the Year Nominee, who would surely relish returning to the continental stage this season after the Soweto giants’ failure to do so.
Kaizer Chiefs recently announced that the Zimbabwean forward was not for sale. The announcement came after rumours which suggested that Mamelodi Sundowns was keen to resigning Billiat.
Billiat is also reported to have rejected offers from several clubs in North Africa who renewed their interest in him after his sublime performance at the 2019 Total AFCON finals held in Egypt.
