“I thought we made a statement and Sundowns made a statement- is there any change on those statements?” Motaung questioned the media.
French sports bible L’Equipe reported this week that Castro might sign for Amiens, which Bafana Bafana’s Bongani Zungu plays for as a replacement for Lacina Traore.
Motaung reiterates that the deal for Castro to don their colours has already been signed and sealed with Sundowns.
“What I always tell people is anything official on Chiefs (should be taken note of). Any rumours- I don’t know who ‘Rumours’ is. I’ve never met Rumours.
“The deal has been done. It was concluded last year. Now all these other things- we’ve never issued a statement,” Motaung said.
Castro has been joined by Kabelo Mahlasela and Siphelele Ntshangase as the Amakhosi’s new signings for the January transfer window.
“If Chiefs make a statement, that’s when something has been concluded, it’s been done. The one that we finalized was (Kabelo) Mahlasela, like we did in December with Castro.
“Once we do that then you know it’s official. Rumours and ‘Speculations’, I’ve never met those people,” Motaung said.
Having loaned Lorenzo Gordinho to Bloemfontein Celtic, it’s said that the out-of-favour William Twala and Keagan Buchanan may follow suit with Maritzburg United and Platinum Stars interested in their services.
