Cairo giants Al Ahly have released a statement announcing the beginning of negotiations over the transfer of amidst several offers for the player.

It took the club just seven hours after announcing the extension of the 32-year-old’s contract to announce the decision to negotiate a potential transfer for the player, before the transfer window opens again in June.

A press statement on the club’s website confirmed that the board led by Mahmoud El-Khatib have given the green light over the negotiations for the playmaker, whether for loan or permanent transfer from clubs abroad.

His contract renewal came after weeks of speculation, with Zamalek chairman Mortada Mansour claiming that the Egypt international was on the verge of joining the White Castle.

The Red Castle, however, announced that the 32-year-old, put pen to paper on a contract extension that will keep him at the club until 2020, without disclosing the deal’s financial details.

El-Said’s contract extension comes one day after Al Ahly veteran right-back Ahmed Fathi renewed his Al Ahly contract for two more years.

The veteran midfielder joined the Red Devils from Egyptian Premier League side Ismaily in 2011. Since then, he helped Al Ahly win four league titles, two CAF Champions League titles, one CAF Confederation Cup, two Egyptian Super Cups, two CAF Super Cups and one Egypt Cup trophy.

    Highly unprofessional move. From the moment Ahly felt Abdalah was weighing his option they starting dealing very unprofessionally with this saga. From pushing the issue into the fans hands to publicly negotiating and divulging every little bit of the negotiations to letting their official channel say retarded comments about the player and the negotiations.

    And all that for what? Because a player with a deal ending in the summer exercised his right to check his options?

    Just another story that proves professionalism is non-existent in Egypt and especially not at Al-Ahly. Al-Ahly benefits from being in a league and in a country (and a continent) where everything is so unprofessional that it makes them look like Real-Madrid. In addition to that, the whole country works and cheer for Al-Ahly and it shows when they hit a wall where non of that can help them, like in this story. Apart from not having a president like Mortada Mansour who would’ve came out screaming in the medias I don’t see the difference between how they handled that and how a club like Ismaily or Zamalek would’ve handled it. Mind you Ismaily sells its stars and none of that happens.

    I agree. Most of the teams in Egypt are extremely unprofessional. This is why nonesense like this happens. The level of professionalism definitely does not match the talent level.

    This is just the tip of the iceberg as well. Egyptian football is also where players sign for other teams whilst under contract to someone else and where players sign for multiple teams. That is beside Ahly and Zamalek making 10-20 signings a season, and not playing them, while letting them rot in their reserves just so other teams don’t have them. Talented Egyptian players should just escape abroad when they get the chance if they want to make something of themselves.
