TS Galaxy chairman, Tim Sukazi, has confirmed that his team is talks regarding the transfer of Given Msimango.
According to media reports, the 25-year-old is already on his way to Naturena and during an interview with Rise FM, Sukazi confirmed the talks between TS Galaxy and Chiefs.
“Yes, there are [talks], very much so,” Sukazi said. “Even then, I want people to know that project TS Galaxy is on its teething phase. We are on our third season and we have only played two full seasons.
“So, we are just starting comparatively speaking because there are clubs that were established in 1937 [Orlando Pirates]. We are realistic as well about our business model and how are we going to continue building this project.
“Part of the model, of course, will be to follow the likes Tottenham Hotspur. If you remember that, there was a time when they had to sell the best player, Gareth Bale, to Real Madrid and they reinvested [that money] in the project.
“Since then, they have become stronger and stronger. They’ve been contending to be in UEFA competitions year-in-year-out. That’s the model, there is no other way. Unless you are spoilt and have endless money. The project stands to sustain itself if rules are very firm. And if it is allowed, to grow organically more than buying success.”
Supersport United defender, Thatayaone Ditlhokwe, is the only player that has been confirmed to be going to Naturena. Besides Msimango, Cape Town City’s Mduduzi Mdantsane is also to be rumoured to be on his way to Naturena. But the move has not been confirmed.
