Galatasaray to trigger option to buy Mostafa Mohamed


Galatasaray want to trigger an important clause in Mostafa Mohamed’s loan deal.

According to reports coming out of Turkey, the Cimbom have decided to activate the option to buy for the Zamalek loanee and keep him on a permanent basis.

With six goals in 11 appearances in the Super Lig, Mohamed has become an integral part of Fatih Terim’s team.

The 23-year-old joined Galatasaray on a 18 months loan deal for a fee of around $2 million, with an option to buy of $4 million.

Galatasaray have until December to permanently purchase him from the Egyptian giants, but according to Turkish publication Hurriyet, they have decided to do so before the end of the current season.

His instant impact earned Galatasaray eight points, but also an incentive bonus valued at around $1.3 million from the Turkish Football Federation following the Egypt international’s goal two weeks ago against Antalyaspor, covering 65% of his loan fee.

Terim’s side currently sit in third spot in the Super Lig table, six points behind leaders Besiktas. They will hope to at least finish in the top two places in order to qualify for next season’s Uefa Champions League.

After recovering from Covid19, the forward returned in time to help the club finish the season on a high. He came off the bench last weekend as they defeated Genclerbirligi 2-0.

On Saturday afternoon, the Lions will take on Besiktas in the Instanbul derby and Mohamed will be eager to score his first derby goal against the local rivals.
