Khumalo was unveiled as a Chiefs player at a press conference on Monday morning, after the left-back was signed to Chiefs in a swap deal also involving Keegan Ritchie.
The former United man said his move to the Soweto giants was not financially motivated, as he was looking for a challenge and a chance to compete.
“I think for me it was more about competing against the best rather than money, I felt I was too comfortable at United,” said the defender.
“I wanted to make a big move, compete and get a new challenge, because fighting for a place with Masilela is not going to be easy.”
“He played in Europe and to compete with him is something I’m looking forward to.”
