Zamalek new coach Hassan Shehata has stopped the team’s negotiations with Ismaily defender Moatasem Salem, demanding to sign Masry’s Hani Said

Zamalek's newly appointed tactician Hassan Shehata is reportedly on the verge of signing defender Hani Said from Port Said side Masry to replace Ismaily’s Moatasem Salem who is in advanced talks to wear Zamalek’s jersey next season.

The Cairo based club former manager Hossam Hassan asked the management to land Ismaily’s defender Moatasem Salem during the summer transfer window.

Shehata, who succeeded Hossam Hassan in leading Zamalek, asked the Whites’ former defender Hani Said to terminate his new contract with Maqassa in hopes of acquiring his services in the skipper position.

Hani Said has recently signed a three-year contract with Maqassa starting from the beginning of the next season.

The 64-year-old tactician, a Zamalek icon, demanded the Pharaohs defender to open talks with his current team Maqassa to terminate his deal with them to retain the Whites’ jersey again.

 The 31-year-old defender has revealed his eagerness to return to the team squad again but asked Shehata to delay negotiations until he open talks with Maqassa management.
