Goal can confirm that Orlando Pirates and SuperSport United are interested in signing Mamelodi Sundowns striker Edward Manqele.

Manqele, who is currently on loan at Moroka Swallows until the end of the season, publicly revealed that he would entertain a move away from Sundowns.

The Tshwane giants were formally approached by Kaizer Chiefs for the services of Manqele, but a Sundowns official confirms that Chiefs are not the only team chasing after Manqele's signature.

"Manqele is not only wanted by Chiefs," the Sundowns official told Goal. "Yes, Chiefs have approached us with a formal proposal, but Pirates and SuperSport have also shown interest," he said.

The 26-year-old forward joined the Brazilians in 2012 after a successful season with Free State Stars where he netted 11 goals.

Prior to signing a five-year deal with Sundowns, Manqele was thought to be on the verge of signing for AmaKhosi although he could still end up in Naturena should Sundowns agree to sell.
