The Brazilians have surprisingly allowed the 32-year-old midfield schemer’s contract to enter its final 12 months and now some of South Africa’s elite clubs are circling. Jali was named as PSL midfielder of the season last term, with Sundowns winning a domestic treble.

Jali’s agent Mike Makaab has addressed the issue:

“There have been rumours in the football media that a number of clubs have officially approached us regarding Andile Jali,” Mike Makaab told Gagasi FM.

“That is not true at all. We are committed to sitting down with Mamelodi Sundowns and hopefully finding a solution for Andile Jali. And if we can’t then obviously we will look at other opportunities. It is not only local opportunities that are interesting for us. But also opportunities outside of the country. So, it will be interesting to see what happened in the next 30 days.”
