English Premier League side Brighton and Hove Albion have tabled a final offer for want-away Mamelodi Sundowns forward Percy Tau.
TimesLive, a South African news website, reports that Brighton offered something in the region of R50-million and could even increase even further with performances clauses.
The deal‚ if completed, will easily surpass any previous fee for a South African footballer. However, the representatives of the English side say they will walk away from the deal if their final offer is not accepted within 24 hours.
This represents the last chance for Sundowns to make money out of Tau‚ who is desperate to go and try his luck overseas.
The 24-year-old is already boycotting Sundowns’ pre-season training because he feels promises made to him are being reneged upon.
