Zamalek confirm offer to resign Sporting’s Shikabala
Zamalek have announced that the club have made an official $600,000 offer to resign Mahmoud Abdel-Razek Fadlallah ‘Shikabala’ from Sporting Clube de Portugal.
Zamalek took to Twitter to confirm a $600,000 (approximately 4.7 million EGP) offer has been made to Sporting CP to resign club icon Shikabala.
The controversial Egypt international joined Sporting from Zamalek for €500,000 at the end of the 2014 winter transfer window on a four-and-a-half year contract. His relationship with the Portuguese club deteriorated quickly, as the Egyptian has been AWOL since last summer, when he failed to report back from international duty.
The Whites have been attempting to resign him ever since. Shikabala even paid Zamalek a visit in April and the club confirmed that a meeting took place between both parties, in which board members were supposed to travel to the Lisbon-based club to settle the matters of his transfer.
Board member Ahmed Mortada Mansour revealed on Saturday that the Whites have raised their bid for their former player, who has not featured for the Portuguese club for almost a year,
Lately, the 29-year-old playmaker has been linked to another Egyptian club: Ismaily. It was revealed exclusively to KingFut.com that Shikabala does not mind playing for Ismaily, either, who recently-appointed Ahmed Hossam ‘Mido’ – a former teammate and close friend of the player – as their new coach.
It is worth noting that Sporting warned Zamalek against contacting Shikabala two months ago, claiming such approaches effect their club negatively. “Your behaviour is contributing and giving strength to the players absence, and thus, increasing the damages caused to our club,” read a part of their letter.
