Several reports revealed that Al-Ahly goalkeeper Mohamed El-Shennawy received a great offer from the Saudi Al-Nasr Club to move to him next season.
Mohamed El-Shennawy has clearly imposed himself on the surface of Egyptian football since his return about five seasons ago, although his beginning with the red genie was modest, before gradually gaining confidence and becoming a goalkeeper “beast” in Al-Ahly and the Egyptian team and even Africa.
According to the Transfer Market website, which specializes in numbers and statistics, the number of goals that netted Mohamed El-Shennawy in his history with Al-Ahly “90” is less than the number of matches in which he kept a clean sheet of “92” matches.
Al-Ahly refuses to compromise the services of Muhammad Al-Shinawy in the current period, but it is possible that the offer made by Al-Nasr or Al-Hilal, who also expressed in winning the services of Al-Shinawy, is tempting to force Al-Ahly to agree to his departure.
In the following report, we review 3 alternatives to Al-Ahly, if Al-Shennawy’s departure is approved.Ahmed El-Shenawy
Al-Ahly’s first solution is to sign Ahmed El-Shennawy, the Pyramids goalkeeper, who has been confined to the bench since the beginning of this season, after contracting with Sherif Ekramy, which made the goalkeeper think about leaving the heavenly team.
The inclusion of Ahmed El-Shennawy is a distinguished option for Al-Ahly, due to the capabilities of the international goalkeeper, and his great experience, after he participated with Zamalek in many tournaments and with the national team and Pyramids.
Al-Mahdi Suleiman, the Pyramids goalkeeper, is considered a candidate to support the guard of Al-Ahly’s den in the event of the departure of Al-Shennawy, in light of the desire of the Red Castle’s Planning Committee to contract with a new goalkeeper, and the coach’s overture to Pitso Mosimane, the need to find a strong alternative to Mohamed Al-Shennawi, the main goalkeeper..
The agent of Al-Mahdi Suleiman is taking advantage of the player’s crisis in marketing and searching for a new club and is trying to test the pulse of Al-Ahly officials regarding the player’s inclusion, but the idea of the goalkeeper’s link to an extended contract with Pyramids may keep the Red Castle officials away from contracting with Al-Mahdi.
The easiest solution is to rely on goalkeeper Ali Lotfi as a primary guard for Al-Ahly in the event of the departure of Mohamed El-Shennawy, and he appeared on Lotfy at a distinguished level in the Zamalek match and proved his worth by wearing the Al-Ahly T-shirt.
