Egyptian giants Al Ahly are preparing improved contracts for their two players in Ahmed Fathi and Abdallah El-Said.

The Red Devils director of football, Sayed Abd El-Hafiz, confirmed new contract offers from Al Ahly for the duo.

El-Hafiz claimed that two experienced players are expected to have the highest and best contracts at the club.

The club has attempted to tie El-Said and Fathi down on a new long-term contracts as their current deals are due to expire in June 2018, but their endeavours haven’t brought the desired results so far.

KingFut reports that the duo has received several offers abroad in Gulf countries and Europe.

Turkish Süper Lig club Konyaspor have contacted El-Said to sign him on a free transfer next summer.

On the other hand, Saudi Pro League side Al Shabab is reportedly attempting to sign Fathi on a free transfer.

Both players play a pivotal role in structuring Al Ahly’s defence and midfield, and their departure would be considered a huge loss to the club.

El-Said has contributed with 10 goals and 11 assists in the Egyptian Premier League this season.

Furthermore, El-Hafiz stated that the club will not expose the details of the new contracts, assuring that they contain several advantages and merits compared to their old contracts.
