Sundowns’ Correspondent: All Ahly Players Are Under Our Radar

With a host of Mamelodi Sundowns players the subject of interest from Al Ahly, reports coming out of Egypt suggest that the Brazilians have flipped the script and could be raiding Pitso Mosimane’s side to bolster their squad!

Al Ahly made no secret of their pursuit of Downs’ playmaker Gaston Sirino, who has been the subject of interest from the Red Eagles over the past two seasons.

The Uruguayan has publicly revealed his desire to reunite with Pitso Mosimane in Egypt, however a move for the 29-year-old has been ruled out, for now.

Now, according to Egyptian publication Kingfut, the Brazilians, who are not exactly shy to fork out when it comes to player acquisitions, have set their sights on a few Al Ahly players.

Without giving away too much information, Sundowns’ correspondent in north Africa Khaled Ali has confirmed that Downs are monitoring the defending CAF Champions League winners.

“For sure any player at Al Ahly is under our radar. We could sign Egyptian players in the upcoming period, but it depends on what the team needs. We have thought about it before and we are still thinking about it now,” Ali was quoted telling Kingfut.

The two teams have enjoyed a mutual respect for one another over the years, something that was recently highlighted by Al Ahly President Mahmoud El Khatib, which means that seeing Egyptian flair in the DStv Premiership is a strong possibility.

It is unclear which area a star-studded Sundowns will be looking to bolster, but their centre back position is an area of concern, with the Brazilians having lost both Wayne Arendse as well as Motjeka Madisha, who passed away in a tragic car accident last year.

It is worth noting that all of Al Ahly’s centre backs in Badr Benoun, Rami Rabi, Yasser Ibrahim, Mahmoud Metwaly, and Saad Samir all have long-term contracts with the Eagles and Sundowns would likely have to negotiate a swap deal or fork out a sizeable transfer fee if they are to pull off a transfer.
