Amakhosi have been interest in his services for months now. It seemed that they were going to miss out on his signature when Mamelodi Sundowns joined the race. However, he has only just become a free agent and it is fair game from here on out.
You can bet that Chiefs are likely to place a bid for Zungu as soon as possible.

There are several reasons that Amakhosi fans can be hopeful of bringing him to Naturena.
Firstly, they have the money to persuade him. Chiefs are a very wealthy club, they currently have two of the PSL’s three highest-paid players in Keagan Dolly (the highest) and Khama Billiat. They had the top three highest-paid stars before selling Samir Nurkovic.

Secondly, Zungu is far more likely to get game time with Amakhosi. Sundowns have a plethora of depth and talent in the midfield with top players like Thabiso Kutumela struggling for regular gametime.
Chiefs are still building up their midfield and depth will be key if they are to compete for silverware across all competitions next season.

Finally, he has already featured for Sundowns before and Amakhosi will provide him with a new challenge.
What matters now is that he is officially one of the hottest free agents. It is fair game between Sundowns and Chiefs moving forward! Starting right now.
