Egyptian giants Al Ahly decide to sell South Africa’s Phakamani Mahlambi

Al Ahly have confirmed that South Africa’s Phakamani Mahlambi will be sold to another club during the current transfer window.

Al Ahly’s director of transfers, Mohamed Fadl, has confirmed that South African footballer Phakamani Mahlambi will leave the Egyptian giants during this very transfer window but only for the right price.

Mahlambi did not make Ahly’s squad for the past two respective games against rivals Ismaily and Al Masry. The 20-year-old was also fined for skipping a training session last week as part of his attempts to force a move away from Ahly.

South Africa’s wealthy, dominant and ambitious club, Mamelodi Sundowns, are among the clubs to have expressed an interest in signing the South African international, but Ahly’s Fadl revealed that Sundowns’ offer for Mahlambi was not acceptable.

“We signed Phakamani Mahlambi for €1.3 million.So we might sell him for around $2 million because we see him as a very good player. He is a big player and plays for the South African national team, but we have very special foreign players, and that’s why he is currently in this situation,” said Fadl.

In addition, the former Egypt international said Mahlambi can’t be kept against his will.

“Phakamani doesn’t want to continue with Al Ahly and we have got approval from Patrice Carteron [Ahly new coach] to sell him. We can’t force him to stay. But we can’t buy Phakamani for €1.3 million and then sell him for only €500,000,” he concluded.
