CAIRO: Banha left-back AbdEl-Baki Mohamed claimed that Ahly and Zamalek are both interested in acquiring his services in January.
The Egypt U-20 international was recently handed a trial with Ahly s youth team, as he revealed that Reds officials were impressed by his displays.
In the same manner, the up-and-coming full-back declared that he is set to join Zamalek youth team on trial basis within the upcoming few days.
I went on trial with Ahly s youth. Maher Hammam [coach] and Ahmed Maher [youth sector head] were impressed and negotiated a contract with me, but nothing is agreed yet, Abdel-Baki told FilGoal.com.
I also received a trial offer from Zamalek, and I should join their youth team on trial soon.
Despite winning the interest from Egypt s top duo, Abdel-Baki stressed that he will not enter any negotiations unless his club is approached directly.
I was offered a pre-contract from Zamalek via agent Osama Metri, but I will not sign any papers unless the interested teams contact Banha officially, he added.
It is believed that Abdel-Baki has caught the eye of former Zamalek star and current board member Hazem Emam, who recommended the signing of the 19-year-old.
