Agent: Ramadan Sobhi’s permanent move to Al Ahly ‘very difficult’
Ramadan Sobhi’s agent has revealed Al Ahly have started the negotiations to sign the player on a permanent basis, but added that his parent club wants him back.
Ramadan Sobhi has rejoined Al Ahly on loan from Huddersfield Town last January for a fee around €800,000, less than six months after joining the former Premier League side.
The 22-year-old struggled for game time with the Terriers, playing just 75 minutes across all competitions, which forced the club to loan him out to the Cairo giants.
He has impressed during his time at his boyhood club, featuring 23 times and helping Al Ahly top the Egyptian Premier League table with only two games to go.
Speculation about permanently joining the Red Devils increased after the Terriers’ relegation, however, the player’s agent has revealed that it’s very difficult for him to stay in Egypt.
“Al Ahly started the negotiations to sign Ramadan Sobhi two days ago. They spoke with me, but Huddersfield Town want the player to return to England on July 2,” Sobhi’s agent Nader Shawky told Time Sports.
“Sobhi’s contract at Al Ahly runs out on July 2 and Huddersfield Town insist on having him back.
“The player wants to stay at Al Ahly for one more season as he wants to win the CAF Champions League with them, but it’s very difficult from him to remain in Egypt due to the financial situation.
“Sobhi’s return to Al Ahly will cost them a lot. My mission is to make things easier for both parties, but the final decision will be made by Huddersfield,” he added.
