Mamelodi Sundowns news: Gaston Sirino's agent confirms Al Ahly and European interest


The agent of Mamelodi Sundowns star Gaston Sirino has come clean over the reported interest from Egyptian giants Al Ahly.

The 29-year-old has attracted interest in his services in North Africa after becoming an integral part of the Sundowns squad since his arrival from Bolivar in January 2018.

Sirino's displays in the CAF Champions League have particularly raised eyebrows, ranked as the player with the most created chances during the 2019/20 campaign.

And with Ahly said to be keen to lure him to Cairo ahead of next season, his representative, Joao Bittencourt, opened up to On-Time Sports 2 about the future of his client.

"I know that there is an interest from some Egyptian and European clubs in the player, and they always ask me about it," Bittencourt confirmed.

"Indeed, there were enquiries on the part of Al-Ahly, which is a big name, about signing Sirino last January, and now too. But Sundowns does not want to sell the player, because he is important to them.

"There is harmony between him and his colleagues, in addition to the conviction of coach Mosimane about it...but they may agree if there is a suitable offer."

Asked whether the Uruguayan could adapt to North Africa in the way he's transitioned into life in Tshwane, Joao remained coy.

"I do not know if the way of life in Egypt and the Arab countries will be appropriate for Sirino or not," he explained.

"Perhaps it will take him some time to adapt to the atmosphere, the family factor will have a role in his choices."
