PSL duo keen on Paez
Having not played for Kaizer Chiefs in over a month, and recently been left out of the club’s CAF Confederation Cup squad altogether, it looks as though the writing could be on the wall for Gustavo Paez at Naturena.
Paez has 10 goals in 52 games since joining the Glamour Boys in January 2017, with the forward penning a two-and-a-half-year deal at the club at the time, a deal that is set to expire at the end of the 2018/19 campaign.
The 28-year-old has fallen rapidly down the pecking order of late, and has been given just four starts in all competitions this season, and there is talk that that his future is up in the air as we head closer towards 2019.
After being involved in a bust-up with Solinas during the Macufe Cup, the Venezuelan went on to apologise for his role in the falling out, telling the club’s official website, “There was no bad intent on my part as I have a great relationship with the coach. It was a case of misunderstanding.
“I admit that it looked bad and for that reason, I apologise sincerely to the Chairman, the club, my teammates, sponsors, supporters and all the stakeholders for this unfortunate incident.”
Paez played the following game – against Black Leopards – after the incident, suggesting that the matter had been put to bed, however he hasn’t played a single minute since then and there is talk that he may be on his way out either in January or when his deal expires. p
According to Siya sources, both b SuperSport United and Cape Town City are tracking he player and could jump aat the opportunity of signing him on a pre-contract in January, once he enters into the last six months of his deal.
According to the source, SuperSport are leading the race for the 28-year-old and, as it stands, he could join them on a free at the end of the current campaign.
Mamelodi Sundowns were heavily linked to Paez last year, though it’s unlikely that they will reignite their interest, considering the amount of foreigners they have on their books.
