Mansour acknowledged that the Zamalek duo will join , formerly known as, Al Assiouty SC, in a deal that could cost 5 million USD.

’s contract is set to expire in 6 months, so after talking to his agent, I have decided to sell him and make money out of the deal instead of letting him go for free,” said Mansour.

He added, ” As for , West Bromwich Albion has decided to not buy the player after the end of his loan period, so we are selling him for about 2.5 million USD.”

“I am trying to save some money for the club, and with these deals I can generate about 30-40 million EGP easily. We have players such as Bassem Morsy and Ahmed El-Shennawy who get paid 5 million EGP and 10 million EGP respectively so we could definitely use the money.”

It was recently revealed that Turki Al Sheikh would lead a takeover of Al Assiouty as well as renaming the club to , or Pyramids FC, it became evident that the club would be delving into the transfer market in order to make a challenge to Al Ahly’s monopoly of the Egyptian league.
