Al Ahly In Race To Tie Up Mahlambi Deal
Phakamani Mahlambi Could Still Leave Wits For Al Ahly
Egyptian giants, Al Ahly, are in a race against time to try and tie up a move for Bidvest Wits’ Phakamani Mahlambi.
The Siya crew broke the news towards the end of last month that the Clever Boys had big money offers from both Mamelodi Sundowns and Al Ahly in an attempt to prise Mahlambi away from the club, however, the South African deadline passed without Masandawana being able to get their man.
Reports coming out of Egypt say that the Red Devils’ offer for the 19-year-old is worth around R17m, but at this stage, it remains to be seen whether transfer terms have – or will – be agreed between the two clubs.
It was originally thought that the Egyptians had until September 14th to try and secure a move for the talented teen, although new information is that, because Mahlambi would be a foreigner, they may only have until the end of tomorrow evening.
Mahlambi is judged to be one of the most exciting young players in South Africa at present and would become the first player from Mzansi to play in the Egyptian Premier League if he does complete a move in the coming days.
