Despite already cruising in the DStv Premiership, Sundowns were the most active side in the January window. The Brazilians already had a nine-point gap on second-placed Cape Town City, with three games in hand at the time. That did not stop them from pursuing a squad boost ahead of the second half of the season. Of course for them, they also have to factor in continental commitments with hopes of a Club FIFA World Cup. They eventually beat Chiefs to be crowned league champions

But with next prospects of even more competition next season, they forayed into the market. 

Sundowns went and signed the Likes of Zukho Mdunyelwa and Matias Esquivel. Then, when everybody thought that they had strengthened enough, they added Thembinkosi Lorch and Tashreeq Matthews. The Rulani Mokwena-led side is showing no signs of slowing down on the transfer market ahead of next season. The South African News already understands that Masandawana has wrapped up a deal to sign Jayden Adams from Stellenbosch FC.

Sundowns chasing Rayners

Now, according to Soccer-Laduma, that is not the only Stellenbosch player they’re chasing. According to the publication, Sundowns have joined Chiefs in the race to sign Rayners. 

“The League champions have turned their attention to one man, Iqraam Rayners. He ticks all the boxes with regard what the Chloorkop outfit are looking for. The 28-year-old has a long-term contract in place with the Winelands outfit. He struggled the last time he tried his luck in Gauteng. Sundowns though, have a track record of being unrelenting in their pursuit of a transfer target. More often than not, they’re able to match the asking price for the player.” Wrote the publication.

Blowing Chiefs out of the water?

Chiefs are believed to have also set their sights on Rayners, but like Junior Mendieta last season, could miss out. If Sundowns enters the conversation, they become immediate favourites.
