OFFICIAL: Mohamed Ibrahim returns to Zamalek until 2019, club seal partnership with Marítimo
Zamalek have announced the return of former youth product Mohamed Ibrahim from CS Marítimo on a four-and-a-half year deal, and the two clubs have also reached a partnership agreement.
Egypt international Mohamed Ibrahim has officially rejoined Zamalek until 2019, after the club came to an agreement with CS Marítimo.
Negotiations were ongoing between the two clubs with Marítimo demanding for €200,000 plus the €400,000 that the Portuguese club have yet to pay for the purchase of Ibrahim, as exclusively revealed on KingFut.com earlier this month. Zamalek are believed to be paying the €200,000 in two installments.

During negotiations chaired by Marítimo’s president, Carlos Pereira, the two clubs also reached a partnership agreement, which will include a pre-season friendly played in Funchal, Madeira this summer, according to O Jogo.
Ibrahim joined Marítimo in August for €600,000, thus becoming the club’s record signing, but failed to adapt to life in Portugal despite playing well for Os Verde-Rubros in his eight official games.
In late November, without informing the club, the 22-year-old left Funchal and returned to Egypt, later confirming that his “journey in Portugal had come to an end.”
Ibrahim, a product of Zamalek’s youth academy, is to be loaned out for the remainder of the season since the team’s list is already full and no adding or replacing any players is allowed, the Egyptian Football Association confirmed.
Ittihad of Alexandria and Smouha were both interested in the attacking midfielder’s services, but he is said to be moving to a club ‘outside of Egypt’, believed to be Saudi Arabian club Al-Oruba.
