The players’ agent, Tamer Al-Nahhas, the mediator of the deal between Al-Ahly and Mohamed Ibrahim, the Egyptian clearance player, confirmed that the Red Club had informed him to withdraw from its completion, noting that the Fayoumi club management requested a large sum to sell the player.
“There was a mutual desire three weeks ago between Al-Ahly and Mohamed Ibrahim for the player to join the team, coinciding with his brilliance in the Egyptian League,” Al-Nahas said in a phone statement to the “Match” program on the “Echo of the Country” channel.
He added, “Al-Ahly was the most keen and serious to sign a contract with the player, and he made a financial offer, but the clearing house requested a greater financial value despite the remaining year in the player’s contract.”
And he continued: “Mohamed Ibrahim expressed an initial desire to move to Al-Ahly, and the former technical director, Rene Fyler, wanted to contract with him and was convinced of him.”
He continued: “The new coach, Pitso Musimani, has a different policy, as he wants to benefit from Al-Ahly players and youngsters in the Playmaker Center, which disrupted Mohamed Ibrahim’s deal and made him withdraw from the deal.”
He continued: “Al-Ahly informed Mohamed Ibrahim that the deal had not been concluded by mutual consent and amicably between all parties, and the player accepted the matter with all respect, and Pyramids are still in the picture.”
He stressed: “The failure of Mohamed Ibrahim to move to Al-Ahly is a great loss because the player would have added a lot to the team technically in light of the group of stars present in the team.”
Tamer Al-Nahhas completed his statements, saying: “The clearing struck a fire in the air and asked for inappropriate numbers to give up Mohamed Ibrahim, and if the club asked for a reasonable amount at the beginning, the deal would have been completed and Ibrahim became a player in Al-Ahly.”
