Over the last 48 hours there's reportedly a take it or leave it, R50 million deal offered to Mamelodi Sundowns for the services of Percy Tau.
Here's how South African football fans reacted to this offer for Tau. Do you believe the Brazilians should take the money and run? Or is Tau worth more?
Brighton & Hove Albion a team said to have made a bid for the service of Percy Tau has snapped £5.25M ( R94M) for Florin Andone . A striker who barely scored for his previous team deportivo la caruna . Below Percy Tau's standard . Indeed Europeans think we don't know money . — STAFF REPORTER (@stevelefophana) June 28, 2018
I genuinely hope Percy Tau joins Brighton, please let the young man shine! — andré (@AFullstopDot) July 5, 2018
But knowing South African players, Percy Tau will probably be back in the PSL 3-4 years from now even if he joins Brighton. — Zamarni Legend (@Zamarni320) July 6, 2018
Percy Tau to Brighton and Hove Albion
CR7 to Juventus
Mbhape to Madrid
Willian to Madrid
Bale to Man United ?
I’d like to see this happen . . — Omnyama (@thibakoena) July 5, 2018
Brighton start pre-season on 8 July & for Percy Tau to NOT be part of it before deal goes through could be CRUCIAL. Walking into foreign dressing room, not quite fit, in a completely alien environment & then trying to earn respect on the training pitch is a noose around the neck. — David Minchella (@David_Minchella) July 5, 2018
Allan was signed by Liverpool 3yrs ago but can't get work permit in England, so he's been loaned out to Finland, Belgium,Germany & lately Cyprus, this is going to be Percy Tau's future with Brighton. — Tshangisa (@Skhomo23) July 6, 2018
Agent knows this but she needs the money now, she's cashing in before Percy Tau gets himself a real agent. If you want Tau for Brighton, offer Sundowns £10m, you kill two birds with one stone, it's the only way he's getting work permit unless that was never your intention — Tshangisa (@Skhomo23) July 6, 2018
You know that on the first 2 grounds to get a work permit, he's already failed, only chance Percy Tau have of playing in England is if you, Brighton purchase him for £7m upwards, minimum,even at £7m it might not be enough to get work permit. You know this and you not telling him — Tshangisa (@Skhomo23) July 6, 2018
Brighton and Hove Albion have submitted a R50m bid for Percy Tau, and Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly accepted the offer. I so hope that if this move materialize Tau better not flop cos that'll give European teams more reason to buy our players at less than R15m in future.— Kokwele M. Phillix (@Matome_Kay) July 5, 2018
Percy Tau I wish he could join Brighton and I've got a belief that he would go far as a player achieving the most in Europe as he was a marvel in PSL I believe he will remain on top in EPL, He is one of the rare finest players we have here in SA and I'm sure he will do very well! — this is me (@MnisiCebo) July 6, 2018
Not just Percy Tau needs to go to England, but I'd like to see more South African players do so. Brighton is a good choice for the Sundowns striker to try and work his way in the team. It's time our SA players became more ambitious, be brave & think positively about foreign moves — Ignat Football (@IgnatFootball) July 6, 2018
