Saint-Etienne entered into strong negotiations with Zamalek to include the Egyptian international striker, but it collapsed completely after the statements of Roland Romier, the other president of the French club (Saint-Etienne has two presidents, one in a supervisory role, the other in an administrative role, and the last is The owner of the crisis).
“What happened is strange and surprising. We offered Zamalek $ 5 million in cash,” Kaizau said in statements to the French website le10sport.
He added, “Everyone is suffering from the economic crisis, so how did Zamalek agree to an offer of 2 million dollars while we offered 5 million?”
And he continued, “Frankly, Galatasaray will not pay the transfer amount quickly and smoothly, until they negotiate the inclusion of Mustafa Mohamed. They were forced to sell a player and now want to sell another player, Sufyan Feghouli.”
He continued: “Mustafa Mohamed is a great player. If he had stayed in Zamalek until the end of the season, all the clubs would have sought to buy him.”
He concluded: “Everyone will see him in the Olympics, and for this we had the insistence to bring him in the winter, his desire was to join Saint Etienne.”
Mustafa Muhammad moved to Galatasaray on loan for a season and a half for $ 2 million, with the possibility of purchase for $ 4 million.
Mustafa scored a penalty kick in his first appearance in the Galatasaray shirt on Tuesday in front of Istanbul Bashkşehir, the Turkish league title holder.
