Monnapule Saleng will not leave for peanuts should Pirates be willing to sell him to any of the potential suitors abroad.

Now, according to iDiski Times, clubs in Morocco and Qatar have also expressed interest in Saleng although they are reluctant to push for the move due to Pirates’ high asking price.

Saleng would then be recalled at the end of his loan deal, and his first season with Pirates, the left-footer was just unstoppable all-season long.
And it is for that reason Pirates are looking for nothing less than R75 million for their star attacker who is also a full Bafana Bafana international.
