And they are close to getting their man this time around with the two clubs’ management said to have agreed in principle on the transfer but there are still a few items they need to discuss.
Grobler revealed at a press conference last year that Pirates tried signing him from United before the start of the 2019/2020 season.
“Pirates were very serious about their offer but they ran out of time as the transfer window closed. They haven’t stopped and I would not be surprised if Grobler joined them now. SuperSport will also look to cash in on him but their main worry is that they might struggle to get someone to replace him.
“But with Thabo Mnyamane coming back and looking hungry, that could make things easier,” said a source.
