The Buckeyes reportedly tried to search for the striker but made no offer.
Baroque FC chairman Khurshi Emphali says he is ready to offer evidence to McGupa because the Orlando Pirates are closely linked to the striker.
The Pirates have so far signed four players but have not yet added a central forward to their squad ahead of the 2021/22 Premier Soccer League season.
Makgopa has returned home with a goal in his name at the Tokyo Olympic Games and has bikinis. Reported to be deep. The 21-year-old was named the PSL’s most promising player last season.
“McGupa is still happy in Baroka. There is no team that has contacted us about McGupa. Sun Sport.
“All I know is that any team that wants a Baroque player knows which channel to follow and we’ll listen to them. But for now, McGupa is a key player for us and he’s the rest of the team. Working hard to train together.
The Pirates had a difficult time finishing last season as Frank Mango, Zakhele Lipasa and Shigofatsu Mabasa were battling injuries.
Coach Joseph Zen Bauer experimented with fielding young Azula Shobini, while Terrence Zuwakmanja, Devon Hoto and Linda Montambo were also fielded as key strikers.
If the pirates sign Makgopa, they will work with former Baroque teammates Goodman Moseley and Collins Makagaka, with whom he formed a strong partnership in Limpopo.
In addition to McGupa, there are pirates, however, Ghanaian forward Kwame Peprah is reportedly close to signing.
The King Faisal Babes attacker is said to have undergone medical treatment on Monday and could sign a contract on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, as Baroka prepares to beat McGupa, coach Emphali insists he has built a strong squad that could help him win silverware.
The Limpopo team has signed TS Sporting goalkeepers Searle Chebway, Sydney Milwaukee and Akani Chowke.
Most of his players are from the National First Division, including Cycla Sethol from Cape Anvaya United, Train Mukhabi (JDR Stars), Ethancosi Daladla (University of Pretoria) and Basel Goldstone from Richards Bay.
“Coach Thoka Matsumila is happy with the team we have put together for the new season,” said Mphahlele.
