Málaga to bid again for Zamalek’s Mohamed Ibrahim in January
La Liga side Málaga are set to renew negotiations with Zamalek for starlet Mohamed Ibrahim, after the earlier summer move collapsed.
Málaga are said to have offered Zamalek €125,000 for playmaker Mohamed Ibrahim to join the club in January on loan until the end of the season, with the option to make the move permanent for €2 million.
The 21-year-old stated his eagerness to leave Zamalek more than once, and his dream move to the Spanish side would have already been a reality if it wasn’t for poor negotiations from former White Knights’ chairman Mamdouh Abbas.
Málaga offered €400,00 to loan Ibrahim during the summer transfer window, but Zamalek’s former board insisted on €500,000.
“I’m waiting for Zamalek to accept Malaga’s new offer, I hope to move abroad as soon as possible,” Ibrahim told YallaKora.
“Malaga have made a new offer to get me on loan for €175,000, €125,000 to be paid by the club and I will give up my €50,000 worth of due wages,” he added.
Ibrahim also says he would sign a one-year extension with Zamalek to force through a move; however, board member Ayman Younes labelled the offer as “weak” financially.
There have been rumors linking the Egyptian international with a move to the Gulf recently – with some reports claiming he would soon join Al-Zawraa in Iraq – but the Zamalek star denied such claims and restated his ambition to play in Europe.
“There is no negotiation between me and the Iraqi club Al-Zawraa, I have not received any offer from any Arab club,” Ibrahim told Yallakora.
“How could I transfer to the Gulf when everyone knows that my dream is to play in Europe in the next period?” he added.
Ibrahim turned into a star in the Zamalek squad under former coach Jorvan Viera, scoring 5 and creating 4 goals before the league was suspended due to the turmoil in the country.
However, under the new management of Helmy Toulan, Ahmed Eid and Shikabala are usually preferred over the 21-year-old playmaker, while the Whites also recently signed Momen Zakaria – which could see Mohamed Ibrahim’s European dream fulfilled this winter.
