Zamalek management are currently discussing a possible friendly against Italy Serie A outfit Parma.

"We received approval from Italian side Parma to face Zamalek in a friendly match," Samir Abdel-Tawab, a marketing company representative close to the deal, told Ahram Online Thursday.

"Zamalek will receive $100,000 for playing the match," he added.

"I informed Zamalek board member Amr El-Ganaini and assistant coach Ismail Youssef of the Italian team's approval," Abdel-Tawab went on. "I'm waiting for their response to conclude the deal."

"The game's date and venue have yet to be decided as we're still awaiting Zamalek's approval," he concluded.

Zamalek will travel to Morocco on Wednesday ahead of Saturday's scheduled clash with Maghreb Fez in the first leg of the Champions League round of 16.
