Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly put a hefty price tag on their talisman Percy Tau, who has rapidly become South Africa’s favourite son among football lovers across the country.
Soccer Laduma reported on Today’s issue that the 23year old striker could be sold for 3 million euros (45million rand) if there were to be any bids by big European clubs during the transfer window.
Perhaps this comes as no surprise considering the lad’s meteoric rise to stardom in recent seasons.
In 2016, Tau became a pivotal part of the historic Sundowns team that won the CAF Champions League for the first time, defeating Egyptian side Zamalek by 3 goals to 1 in the final contested over two legs.
In addition to the CAF trophy, Tau has since won multiple titles with ‘Bafana ba Style’ including three Premier League titles, (2013-14, 2015-16, 2017-2018), the Nedbank Cup (2014-15), the Telkom Knockout (2015) as well as the CAF Super Cup (2017).
He made his international debut for Bafana Bafana on 17 October 2015 in a 2-0 loss to Angola in a 2016 African Nations Championship Qualification match and scored his debut goal on 25 March 2017, against Guinea-Bissau in a friendly match.
The lad has since scored in major tournaments for Bafana against the likes of Nigeria in the 2019 Afcon Qualifiers, Burkina Faso and Senegal in the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers and most recently against Zambia in the 2018 Four Nations tournament which South Africa conquered in Zambia.
He is also the league’s joint the top goal scorer alongside Polokwane City’s Rodney Ramagalela in the race for the golden boot which puts him in contention for the Premier League’s player of the year award.
Reports have emerged of how teams from Russia, Denmark, England and France are fiending for the striker’s signature.
His club coach Pitso Mosimane has recently said the time has arrived for Tau to leave South Africa and he is good enough to play in any of the top five leagues in Europe.
Speculation will continue to grow in the coming months, however Tau will focus on helping his team get off to a good start in the upcoming CAF Champions League tournament.
