Sundowns are set to sign Zimbabwean international soccer legend Peter Ndlovu, in a deal that will make the striker the highest paid player in the local Castle Premiership League.
Reliable sources from the player's camp told SAsoccer365.com that Ndlovu and his manager Winston Makamure will put pen to paper on to a deal that is worth around R2.5 million as a signing on fee.
"Makamure have been Ndlovu's business manager since he turned professional more than tens years ago and now he feels that the Sundowns deal is the best that the striker will ever get," said the source.
Makamure is known to be a tough negotiator and when he is not happy with what his player is offered, he does not hesitate to pack his bags.
"Ndlovu signed for Stoke City after he was released by fellow first division outfit Sheffield United in England but the two walked away after a week when they found out that the player will be getting much less than he was going to get in South Africa and in China where his service was also been chased,' added the source.
Ndlovu is the younger brother of the Ndlovu siblings which include Mandida and Adam who have been the corner stone of Zimbabwean football for the last ten years.
Peter started his football career at Highlanders Football club, the same club where Manning Rangers coach and former Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar kicked off his career.
The deadly striker scored 93 goals during his 13 seasons in England for clubs like Coventry City, Birmingham City, Huddersfield and Sheffield United and has hit the back of the net on 29 occasions for his country.
Big spending Sundowns will be hoping that their new striker will match his price tag on the field, in a league that have seen strikers shying away from their job of scoring.
