EXCLUSIVE: Zamalek camp head to Torino to negotiate Mostafa Fathi transfer

Mostafa Fathi
Zamalek board members are set to travel to Italy to negotiate Mostafa Fathi transfer to Torino.

Mostafa Fathi’s move to Italy gets closer as board members take first serious steps to negotiate a deal with Torino.

KingFut understands Torino have kept their interest in Zamalek prodigy Mostafa Fathi after negotiations broke down last summer.

Torino have kept their bid the same as last summer, a €500,000 loan deal with obligation to buy at the end of the season, meaning the club will cash in on around 10 million Egyptian Pounds in six months, rather than one year.

Should the deal be agreed to go through, Torino will be obliged to buy the 22-year-old winger for a fee believed to be north of €2.5 million.

KingFut previously revealed the player received offers from Serie A clubs Torino and Bologna for the Egyptian international last summer but Zamalek president Mortada Mansour refused the deal, claiming the club would not sell the player for less than €5 million.

Fathi also attracted interest from Swiss giants FC Basel who sent a scout to watch him in action. The player was also reportedly a subject of interest from LOSC Lille and Palermo.

Fathi recently renewed his contract to see him stay more years in the White Castle but it was a ploy to confirm Zamalek’s hefty price tag for the Italians but with agreement with the player that shall the right bid come in, he will be let go.

Zamalek board members headed by Ahmed Mortada Mansour are expected in Italy next week to begin negotiations with the club, with hopes that they would get the transfer fee up to €3 million rather than €2.5 million or try to raise the loan fee to a sum around the €700,000 mark.
