The players' contracts with Chiefs expired last Wednesday and are yet to find new teams. Initially they were said to be heading out of Chiefs, but as they have not attracted any suitors, it is envisaged that they are keen on returning to Naturena.
Sources privy to the ins and outs at Chiefs say the players will play for Amakhosi next season under new coach Steve Komphela.
Masango's deal, according to the source is almost done, while Khune's is yet to be finalised.
The 48-year-old Bidvest Wits goalkeeper coach says he's saddened by Khune's current situation, and he feels it is time that the 28-year-old shot-stopper finds a club.
"It is a sad situation he finds himself in. It is just not good that he is clubless. I honestly think for the sake of the national team he needs to find a club," Arendse said.
Khune recently broke Arendse's record of 67 Bafana caps, and despite featuring in the last four international matches for Shakes Mashaba's side, the former Sundowns keeper believes Khune could lose his place in the national team.
"It will be extremely difficult for him to continue playing for the national side when he has no team. Let it be for the sake of his career which has seen him achieve so much. Let him return to Chiefs," Arendse stated.
Khune has been linked with a possible move to either Mamelodi Sundowns or Orlando Pirates, while he was also reported to have attracted interest from several European clubs, including Turkish club Gençlerbirliği S.K.
