A source at the Wekundu wa Msimbazi confirmed that the Egyptian giants have been silent since being linked to the South African.
Al Ahly of Pitso Mosimane has become dumbfounded about the possibility of signing Simba SC wing Luis Miquissone since joining South African international Percy Tau.
According to a source at Simba, the Egyptian giants have not responded since reaching a $ 900,000 deal to acquire the Mozambican on a four-year contract.
“We are still waiting for their formal position,” the source said. Purpose. ‘We had seamless conversations with them until we agreed on the price of our wing, but it’s been days since we heard from them.
‘Maybe they decided to focus on the South African [Percy Tau] and thus we forget that we were talking about Miquissone. The player is affected because he wanted the deal to be finalized as soon as possible, but now we are in the dark of what Al Ahly wants.
‘Let’s assume the focus is on him [Tau] and after that they will return to us and tell us what the way forward is. ”
The source raised doubts as to whether the African champions really needed Miquissone or whether it was their strategy to weaken the position of the Msimbazi giants.
“Sometimes you do not make an actual decision of a competitor, but it can be a strategy to bring down your home,” he added.
‘Miquissone has been our star since he got there, and Al Ahly knows it.
“They know it, because when they played against us, it was he who caused problems. Do you remember the goal in the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium?
“Business-wise, I would like Miquissone to join them, but deep down I know it would be a loss for Simba, because he is a star who will be difficult to replace once he leaves.”
Reports of Tau moving from Brighton and Hove Albion to Al Ahly have recently dominated the media space and Mosimane likes the former star of Mamelodi Sundowns at Lionel Messi.
“Percy is a strong man, he’s like Messi. He has so much to show you every week. So let’s give him a chance to show,” Mosimane said.
‘Yes, I want to sign Percy if Brighton agrees to sell Percy and we can pay him. First, we have to pay Percy. If we can pay him, he must come and show that he is the king of the jungle. So let him come.
With six games left, Al Ahy and Zamalek are engaged in a close Premier League race, as they each have 64 points, but Mosimane’s team are on top with a head-to-head advantage.
