Liverpool and Manchester City could both use a bit of extra depth up front next season. With this striker now set to hit the market, it would seem logical that one of these clubs would swoop in to take him off the hands of this helpless Premier League club.
The Egyptian sensation’s parent club, Zamalek, insist they hold the rights over him.
And with Premier League big guns falling over themselves to snap him up for £7million, the message is clear: He will go to the highest bidder.
A spokesman for Zamalek said: “We have the legal rights to either accept or reject offers for the player.
“We would accept the highest bid for him.” (The Sun)
With Wigan out of the picture, it now looks like the highest bidder will win the right to have Zaki’s services at their club next year. Both Liverpool and Manchester City have claimed to be interested in the striker earlier in the year after he made a lasting impression on the Anfield club in one of the best matches of the early season.
Would Liverpool or Man City supporters like their respective club to take a shot at brining Zaki in next year?
