Milesi spent a year alongside Allende at City joining in August 2021 before leaving the following season to city rivals Club Atletico Penarol.
It is from Penarol that he has now joined Al Ahli on a deal whose details have not been given.
A few weeks after Milesi left City Torque, Allende was also out heading to Sundowns in the biggest transfer ever for a player coming into the domestic league after moving for what was reported to be a transfer worth R52 million.
Allende was with the Uruguayan Primera Division club from January 2020.
The two played together in the Copa Libertadores and the Primera Division last year while the season before they also featured together wearing the same colours in the league.
Milesi plays as a central midfielder.
Mosimane has already signed Brazilian hitman Marco 'Marcao' Amaral, Gambian attacker Modou Barrow and Saudi international winger Sumayhan Al-Nabit through the January transfer window.
The former Bafana Bafana coach is unbeaten in 13 games in Saudi Arabia and has led the popular club to the top of the second division with their promotion and title destiny now firmly in their own hands.
Though playing in the second-tier league, Al Ahli have been playing before huge crowds and their next league match against Al Akhdoud at the King Abdullah Sports City is already sold out at the 63 000-seater venue.
