Malaga are contemplating a move for Egyptian starlet Mohamed Ibrahim in the January transfer window.
The 21-year-old attacking midfielder was on the Costa del Sol club’s radar last summer. However, Zamalek boss Helmy Tolan decided against letting him go, a decision that was proved correct last month when the club won the Egyptian Cup after a trophyless five years.
It is understood that while Ibrahim is not a priority at Malaga, boss Bernd Schuster is keen to take him on a six-month loan deal with a view to a permanent transfer, an arrangement that would sit well with the player.
“It is my dream to play in La Liga, where a lot of stars play, and it would be good for me,” he said recently.
Meanwhile, Zamalek board member Sabri Seraj told supersport.com that his club have given the green light for Ibrahim’s move to the Spanish club.
“The board held a meeting in the last few days and signed a formal approval to let Ibrahim go. We now await Malaga’s delegation visiting Cairo to complete the deal.
“They will pay €200,000 and play two friendly matches against Zamalek, which is very good,” he explained.
