Since the time that one speaks about it, the Saint-Etienne supporters must be impatient to see Mostafa Mohamed put on the green jersey. They may be reassured, it should be soon. The 23-year-old Egyptian striker has contractually agreed with ASSE and his club Zamalek have resolved to release his player this winter, although he initially wanted to keep him until June. There would only be one last detail to settle.
Zamalek does not compromise on the 5 M €
Yesterday, we relayed the fact that the director of recruitment from Saint-Etienne, Jean-Luc Buisine, went to Egypt last Sunday to finalize the transaction. There remains a sticking point, which could relate to the fact that ASSE would like to stagger the payment. In reality, it would not be that.
From Egyptian sources, the Zamalek agrees that the transfer be paid in several installments. On the other hand, he refuses to compromise on the amount: it is 5 M €, no less. The Greens, who are forced into economic austerity, have therefore tried to negotiate downwards. Missed. They will have to pay 5 M €, even though Claude Puel had assured last summer that transfers of such a sum were no longer possible for his club …
🚨 BUTASSE ALERT! 🚨
Beyond disappointing results, ASSE must also deal with calamitous management … Straight to the wall?
