REPORT: Major development for Mostafa Mohamed-Saint-Etienne deal
Reports from major French news outlets have claimed that there is a major development in talks between Ligue 1 outfit Saint-Etienne and Cairo giants Zamalek regarding the transfer of Egypt striker Mostafa Mohamed.
Mohamed has been heavily linked with a move away from Zamalek for a while now with several European sides expressing their interest in the forward.
The 23-year-old seemed close to joining Ligue 1 outfit Saint-Étienne before talks broke down following club president Roland Romeyer’s comments against Zamalek.
Zamalek later halted negotiations and threatened to take legal action against Romeyer. The Whites also stated that ‘there is no way’ to continue negotiations with the French club despite their continued attempts to sign him.
However, according to French source L’Equipe, Saint-Etienne would be in a very advanced stage in the reopened negotiations with Zamalek after a period where the relationship was tense between the two clubs after the French club president’s claims.
L’Equipe stated that Negotiations are about to be concluded and a final agreement for the transfer of the 23-year-old is hoped to be reached by Thursday morning.
Mostafa Mohamed has missed Wednesday’s training session and was left out of the club’s squad for their next encounter against Misr El-Makkasa.
The player is reportedly trying to force a move this January, while Zamalek want to keep the player until the end of the season to sell him after the Olympics.
