Billiat’s Saudi Deal Off The Table

Mamelodi Sundowns' Khama Billiat Still Hasn't Agreed A New Deal

Saudi Arabian side, Al-Nassr, are believed to have pulled the plug on their attempts to sign Mamelodi Sundowns’ Khama Billiat after they received no response from Masandawana.
 
 
Reports last month stated that the Saudi club were offering a hefty sum to Sundowns as they tried to lure the Zimbabwean away from Chloorkop, however the figure didn’t match the player’s buyout clause of €2.5m (around R39m).
 
Billiat’s talks with Sundowns regarding a new contract – his current one expires next season – have stalled as the club look to try and keep him at the club, and as things stand he will be able to open up talks with any interest parties on January 1st when he enters into the last six months of his deal.
 
According to Siya sources, the main issue regarding the new contract is – as previously reported – the buyout clause. Billiat is seeking a substantially lower clause as he has one eye on moving to Europe, although Sundowns aren’t willing to accommodate that.
 
The Siya crew have been informed that, not only can they not agree on the financial package at this stage, but ‘Downs want to give the 26-year-old a straight five-year deal with no buyout clause at all.
 
At this point it looks unlikely that Billiat will commit his future to the Brazilians despite his success there, and he could be donning the colours of a different club in 2018.
 
The crew did look to contact the player’s agent, Siyabulela Loyilane, however she was unwilling to comment on Billiat's current situation.

Billiat, your future with these skolies is gone boy. Zungu & Dolly opted for a lower wages than listening to this jealous Pitso. A player that listens to Pitso is fooling himself, this guy jealous to the core especially for talented players who want to ply trade abroad. Jomo did not block him when he wanted to join the Fish & Chips team with no name in Greece

That's Sundowns way of operation. They never let the player further his career somewhere without hustling with him.

Sundowns and Billiat will have to meet each other halfway. It's either Sundowns accept 25m or Billiat wait until January to sign a pre-contract with the team of his choice period.

@Khosification Amu86 who said Khama heart is no longer at Chloorkop because Billiat don't have a problem to sign a new contract he just want tomuch money to his salary and he want Sundowns to reduce his buyout clause from 39M to 20M Sundowns don't want that so according to you starless idiot if a player is negotiating with his team that means his heart no longer there?ncincinci

play out your contract and get out of there, once you are signed to sundowns its difficult to go out, zungu and dolly will tell you about it. I mean they did not respond to an offer, just kept quite, that's disrespectful toward billiat

So Sundowns did not want to take R35m,just R4m less to risk losing Khama on a free if his contract expires next year or they will alterate the contract as they did to Dolly's.
