Mamelodi Sundowns have forked out a staggering R18 Million for the highly talented midfielder if the reports are anything to go by!
HAS MAMELODI SUNDOWNS JUST SHATTERED THE PSL TRANSFER FEE RECORD?
The 25-year-old right midfielder who can also play as a right-back has featured 93 times for Bolivar since joining the club in 2018.
IS SAAVEDRA THE ‘BIG’ SIGNING?
“Every window there is work to be done. I think we are very close to concluding one transfer, incoming,” Mamelodi Sundowns co-coach Rhulani Mokwena said late last year.
“We are very close, but I am tight-lipped on that one. The club will release a statement. We are close to signing a player who will be very important for us this season and we felt that we needed a bit more cover with regards to a specific position.
“Mamelodi Sundowns don’t have that type of profile, and an interesting profile. Hopefully, we can still strengthen with one or two others, but we won’t be doing too much business in this January transfer window. Maybe one or two to go out on loan.”
According to further reports by FarPost, an official announcement regarding the sensational transfer will be made by Bolivar in the coming days.
