“The interest in Teboho (Mokoena) has been growing since he joined Sundowns. What I know is that the Monaco’s interest has been there for a while now. They first inquired about (Cassius) Mailula but when they could not get him they then inquired about Teboho,” said the source.
“Now they have renewed that interest. However there is another inquiry, this is from an English Premiership club that we can’t mention at the moment. There are very few people who know about it. They are a good club as well. Some of the things are not done by the Sporting Director but by the agent so it’s a tricky situation but the interest is there from those two clubs. One from England and another from France,” the source revealed.

WILL SUNDOWNS LET HIM GO?
Sundowns aren’t about blocking a player’s progression but they will be aware that Mokoena’s market value is soaring and they will want fair compensation.
“As much as the inquiries and interest are there, you should not forget that it also involves money as it’s a business. Teboho has a contract with Sundowns and he is still their player. It’s them who would decide on whether he leaves or not and how much it could cost the interested team.
“There was a team from Belgium before who inquired about him but their offer was too low. So the money will also determine whether he goes to England or France or even stays at Sundowns for now.
“Let’s wait because the window period is closed. This could only happen at the end of the season as it were now,” a second source told Soccer Laduma.
