It is believed that, this time around it will be no different between the two Soweto giants. This, of course, will inevitably see them clash for certain targets. According to reports they’re already clashing for Stanley Nwabali, Oswin Appollis, Elias Mokwana, Riaan Hanamub and Shaune Mogaila. That does not seem to be where the list ends, however, with a new name set to be part of the tug-of-war. 

In fact, just three weeks ago this publication reported that Chiefs had joined Pirates in the race for Freddy Kouablan. Last month, both were thought to be in the race for Chippa United star Baraka Majagoro. TS Galaxy’s Thato Khiba has also since entered the list. That just proves that both clubs are looking to strengthen their forward lines ahead of next season. Now the latest name to be discussed by both clubs suggests their defensive lines are also a targeted area for improvement.

Nwabali thought to be going abroad

One of those players on that list that both Chiefs and Pirates seemed to have an outside chance with is Nwabali. This was because of the exorbitant R30 million price tag Chippa United have slapped on him. It is thought the other stumbling block are the options abroad. 

Now according to KickOff.com one of those teams from abroad, Al Ettifaq has pulled out. This could serve as a big boost for Chiefs and Pirates. 

Still a chance for Chiefs and Pirates?

“An international club has now reportedly pulled out of the race to sign a Kaizer Chiefs-linked Nigeria star. Saudi Pro league side Al Ettifaq have withdrawn their interest in Chippa United goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali. Pulling out of negotiations with the South African club, according to SCORENigeria. It is said that the negotiation process had become drawn out, with the Steven Gerrard-led side believed to have run out of patience. It has been claimed that while the Saudi club never had a problem with paying the amount required to secure the shot-stopper’s services, they pulled out of a potential deal because they never received any assurance from the player’s camp.” Wrote the publication.

Chiefs are believed to have pulled out of a deal for Nwabali, while Pirates are still in.
