Mamelodi Sundowns have reportedly received an R18 million bid for the services of attacker Percy Tau

According to Sowetanlive, Russian club FC Rostov has already submitted their bid to the Brazilians, with Denmark's Midtjylland also reported to be after the player's signature. 

It is now up to the Tshwane giants to either reject both offers or sell their speedy attacker before the January transfer window closes on Wednesday.

Tau's agent, Mmatsatsi Sefalafala confirmed to the publication that it is still a 50/50 situation, before adding that the final decision rests with Sundowns. 

"It's a 50/50 situation. I don't know if Sundowns would defer them to the end of the season or allow him to go," Sefalafala said.

"But Percy has a contract with Sundowns and he's still committed to the cause. He will respect whatever decision they make," she added

Pitso Mosimane recently admitted that while he wanted to Tau to eventually go abroad, he didn't think the 23-year-old player was ready for Europe.
