2,5 MILLION PRICE TAG FOR KHAMA BILLIAT

Mamelodi Sundowns could be prepared to sell their star striker Khama Billiat if a club meets their $2,5 million valuation of the Zimbabwe international.

Billiat is believed to be the subject of interest for Egyptian sides, including Al-Ahly, and while Sundowns are keen to hold on to the player, they could be tempted to sell at the right price.

European sides, however, are unlikely to be willing to meet Sundowns’ valuation of one of their “CBD” trio.

Billiat is one of the three Sundowns players who made the Confederation of African Football Champions League Team of the Week after their impressive performances thus far in the competition. Teko Modise and Thabo Nthethe were also picked as some of the top performers in the continental competition after Match Day Four.

Modise was a marvel to watch as he pulled the strings and commanded the midfield in Sundowns’ 1-0 win over Egyptian giants, Zamalek, last week.

Billiat tormented the Zamalek defence and came close to scoring on numerous occasions. Nthethe was solid at the back and easily thwarted every attacking effort Zamalek tried.

Cote d’Ivoire giants, Asec Mimosas, also have three players in the team, with defender Nabi Ibrahim Kone, midfielders, Nimaki and Diarrassouba
