The agent of the Mamelodi Sundowns star has quashed Pitso Mosimane’s hopes of seeing the 24-year-old move to the Premier League
Amid talks of a move to Europe’s top five leagues, Percy Tau’s representatives Titan One Sports are looking to place the highly sought-after attacker elsewhere.
The Mamelodi Sundowns marksman has been tipped for a potential move to either Ligue 1, the Premier League, Serie A or Bundesliga and was also quoted as saying he favours a move to La Liga in Spain.
But his representative Brett Norman believes the 24-year-old would be best suited in a league outside the top five.
“Yes, it’s no secret that Percy has interest from Europe,” Norman told Goal.
“I have seen a lot of talk about the big five leagues in Europe.
“Personally, I don’t think that is the best route because African and European football is completely different.
“There is a belief that you can just place a player anywhere in the world and they will play exactly the same, that’s not always the case.
“We believe a league outside the top five in Europe would be ideal, it would give Percy the time to adapt on and off the pitch without the pressure. Then after 1-2 years, I have no doubt he can go onto one of the big leagues, concluded the English-based agent.
