Reports have further emerged that The Red Devils have tabled an offer in the region of USD 120 000 (around R2-million) per month for the services of the former Bafana Bafana coach, which would easily double ‘Jingles’ current Sundowns salary, which was believed to be between R800 000 and R1-million per month, including win bonuses, after he penned a new four-year deal back in May this year.

With Mosimane’s move to the Club of the Century now imminent, it has been revealed that his monthly salary could actually be closer to USD 270 000 (R4.5-million), excluding win bonuses.
