Agent: Ramadan Sobhi close from staying in Premier League
The 21-year-old winger was relegated with the Potters to the English Championship after finishing 19th in the league with 33 points, two behind Ali Gabr and Ahmed Hegazi’s last place West Bromwich Albion.
Shawky revealed to Egyptian radio station Mega FM that Sobhi has several offers from Premier League clubs and discussed the player’s future and the possibility of an Al Ahly return.
“Ramadan is close from staying in the Premier League and he received offers from league clubs,” Shawky said.
“In case he didn’t stay in England, the player will move to another club in Spain, Italy or Germany but it won’t be possible for him to move to the Swiss or Turkish league on loan.”
The agent added that the player, who is part of Egypt’s squad in the 2018 World Cup, will try to decide his future before the beginning of the showpiece event as waiting after the competition would be a risk.
He spoke about conditions set if the player decided to return to Al Ahly and confirmed that there was contact by ex-Al Ahly honorary president Turki Al-Sheikh.
“Indeed there were contact with Al Sheikh, but Ramadan prefers to continue in Europe. Although the player was offered to be paid in English pounds at the Red Castle but we aren’t looking for money.”
“He will return to Al Ahly only if he feels that he will receive game time to regain his confidence,” Shawky said. “He is still young and is still learning but the fans are rushing and should be patient.”
