Egypt national team coach Tarek Mostafa has advised Zamalek to sell their highly-rated forward Mostafa Mohamed.
Zamalek have had a disappointing week recently as they suffered two consecutive defeats to crash out of two tournaments in the space five days.
The White Knights suffered a 2-1 defeat against arch-rivals Al Ahly in the CAF Champions League final on Friday. And they fell to a surprising 3-1 loss to Tala’a El-Gaish in the Egypt Cup semi-finals days later.
Zamalek have already managed to sign Hamza Mathlouthi and Alexander Jakobsen on permanent deals. As they look to rebuild ahead of the new season.
And Tarek Mostafa believes Zamalek will ultimately have to sell star player Mostafa Mohamed. This in order to recruit more players and improve other areas in the squad.
“Zamalek could benefit financially from selling Mostafa Mohamed and could get between EGP150 or EGP200 million for him.” Tarek Mostafa told MBC Masr.
“The club can replace him. And he’s the only player at Zamalek right now who can pull such a high transfer fee if he moves abroad. Selling Mostafa Mohamed will help the club renew contracts of key players as Achraf Bencharki, Ferjani Sassi, and Youssef Obama.” He added.
Mohamed has had an outstanding season with Zamalek. As he scored 16 goals and provided three assists in 46 games across all competitions.
The 24-year-old has been previously linked with European sides including Galatasaray and Fenerbache, with Spanish outfit Rayo Vallecano the latest to be in pursuit of Mohamed.
