Giants embroiled in Chukwu battle 23/08/04
Mamelodi Sundowns and Kaizer Chiefs are once again embroiled in a battle for a quality striker, with Raphael Chukwu the target this time.

The Premier Soccer League rivals were involved in a battle for Peter Ndlovu a few weeks ago, with Sundowns emerging victors.

Now Chiefs sources reveal they are confident of signing Nigerian striker Chukwu, just as they did with Ndlovu, who the Amakhosi actually had flown into the country for initial contract talks.

But the Brazilians held contract negotiations with their former star on Tuesday and are adamant that the powerful striker will sign for them.

"Chukwu has made it clear he wants to play for Sundowns again. We are just waiting for him to return from Italy so we can resume talks. I can tell fans that negotiations are well advanced," Sundowns' Alex Shakoane was quoted by the Sunday Times.

But Chukwu had earlier hinted at finishing his career at Chiefs, revealing in a radio interview that the Amakhosi "were one of Africa's best clubs and he'd be happy to join them one day".

Chiefs boss Kaizer Motaung met with Sundowns supremo Patrice Motsepe on Monday and the pair ironed out their differences, especially the existing tension because of the Ndlovu issue.

Motaung confirmed that Motsepe conceded that he was not aware that the Amakhosi were holding talks with the Zimbabwean captain and admitted that it was unethical behaviour by the player and his agent.
