The Soweto giants could jump at the opportunity to sign the want-away striker should they fail to get Knowledge Musona from TSG Hoffenheim

Goal can exclusively reveal that Edward Manqele is trying to force a move to Kaizer Chiefs after requesting to be released out of his contract at Mamelodi Sundowns.
The former Free State Stars marksman, who declared himself "happy at Sundowns" a few weeks ago, realized that his chances of playing regular football are slim under coach Pitso Mosimane.
A source close to the player has now told Goal that Manqele still wants to move to AmaKhosi although he still needs to resolve his issues with Sundowns first.
"It's not a secret that Jabu wants to join Chiefs, but let's see if they (Sundowns) agree to terminate his contract first," said the source.
Chiefs tabled an offer for the Mohlakeng-born striker back January, but Sundowns didn't even entertain it as they were looking to hold on to him, although he was on loan at Moroka Swallows at the time.
