  • Kaizer Chiefs are interested in signing Pitso Mosimane and Percy Tau
  • Amakhosi want a new coach and they are also short of goals in attack
  • Mosimane and Tau were crucial to Mamelodi Sundowns’ recent success

Kaizer Chiefs are nursing a massive ambition of reuniting Pitso Mosimane and Percy Tau at the South African club next season as they try to rebuild ahead of the 2024/25 campaign.

The management of Amakhosi are eager to bring the glory days back to the club after a turbulent few years which has seen them finish trophyless heading into a decade now.

According to GOAL, a section of Kaizer Chiefs fans believes there is no way the DStv Premier League club can afford Mosimane who only in January signed a four-month contract with Abha Club.

Tau on the other hand is one of the highest-paid South African footballers as the former Mamelodi Sundowns, Brighton, and Anderlecht forward is regarded as one of Amakhosi’s top targets for the summer.

Here, Sports Brief takes a look at how much Kaizer Chiefs will need to raise in order to sign both Mosimane and Tau next season.

How much will Amakhosi raise

Kaizer Chiefs will need to raise at least R7 million monthly for the salaries of Mosimane and Tau aside from monies for their sign-on fees if their dream of signing the legendary South Africans in the summer can become reality.

Per The South African, Tau reportedly earns a whopping R2 million a month with Egyptian giants Al Ahly and the Bafana Bafana striker will need to be offered more money to return to the PSL.

According to Briefly, Mosimane on the other hand, reportedly earned R3 million a month at Al Ahli before he terminated his contract with the Saudi Pro League club after he and his staff were allegedly not paid their salaries for months.

Wydad AC wants Pitso Mosimane

Earlier, Sports Brief reported that Wydad Casablanca is interested in Mosimane, despite the Abha Club coach also being linked with Premier Soccer League club Kaizer Chiefs.

The former Mamelodi Sundowns manager is now the coach of Abha Club in Saudi Arabia, and his goal is to keep the team from being relegated from the Saudi Pro league.

The 59-year-old signed a short-term contract with the Leaders of the South and has recorded two victories, one draw, and two losses in his first five games.
