Atletico Madrid target Al Ahly U-17 defender

Posted on May 6, 2014

Al Ahly 97 team’s U-17 defender Mostafa El-Faramawy is reportedly close to joining Spanish giants Atletico Madrid, after impressing in the Sheikh Zayed Youth Tournament last month.

The director of the youth setup of the Madrid based club declared the club’s interest in the 17-year-old defender after his impressive performances during the friendly tournament which was held last month in the UAE. Mostafa was part of the team that beat Atletico Madrid 3-2 in the tournament.

Atletico Madrid’s youth coach has previously declared his interest in Al Ahly’s trio of Ramadan Sobhy, Karim Walid ‘Nedved’, and Maher Nasser. However, El-Faramawy’s transfer to the Madrid giants would be easier due than the trio because of his contract which expires sooner.

El-Faramawy’s agent, Mohamed Fathi, declared that the defender has also attracted interest from Getafe, Valladolid, and Deportivo de La Coruña.

It’s well worth mentioning that the previously mentioned trio, as well as Mostafa El-Faramawy have received praise from many of the scouts and coaches present in the tournament last month.
