Mohamed Al-Tawila, head of the Al-Nujoom Club, stated that Al-Ahly did not submit any official offers to sign Karim Fouad, who is loaned from the team to the ranks of Enppi Club, explaining that Karim Fouad’s desire is 100% settled, and he also referred to attempts to renew negotiations with Benfica.
In his statements to the “On Time Sports 2” channel, Al-Taweelah said: “Karim Fouad is not continuing with Enppi, and his loan ended at the end of May, and Enppi informed me more than a month ago that they are not thinking of contracting with him.”
He continued: “Al-Ahly has not yet contacted us officially, and the line that I am following is the one that serves the interests of all parties, and it is in the club’s interest that we do not talk with any party now, because the Olympics begin in two months and there is no need to negotiate now.”
He added, “What I seek is for the player to move to Europe because Benfica was interested in the player last year and things did not happen due to the Corona virus, and those who work on developing the talents of the Star Club are experts from Benfica, and they are what they promoted to the first team and he is 17 years old.”
He continued: “The player’s desire is 100% with Al-Ahly club, unless Europe comes, and the club’s desire is far from other accounts. We consider Al-Ahly the first place that I hope my talented son will be a player in, but I prefer to wait until we see the situation in Europe.”
And he added, “If the appropriate offer comes that makes us hurry things up, there is no objection to rushing… I cannot say the appropriate number that we are looking for, but certainly the value will be more than what we put in the clause of the right to purchase for Anby.”
He concluded, “If we do not get the appropriate offer for Karim Fouad during the next period, he will play on loan to one of the top four clubs in the league.”
