There seems to be more and more uncertainty with regards to Percy Tau’s Al Ahly future. 

Every week or month there seems to be a twist in Tau’s negotiations for a contract extension at Al Ahly. 

The Bafana Bafana international was in scintillating form for Al Ahly prior to the 2023 Afcon in Ivory Coast. He ended the 2022/23 season with 17 goal contributions in 42 games. That saw his name linked with overseas interest once again. A promising start to the season saw Tau get six goals but he seems to have stagnated on them, with no assists. His form from the previous seemed to be the driving point for contract extension talks.

This new contract was set to make Tau the most paid player on the African continent. According to Egyptian reports, it would’ve been a three-year deal. That would’ve have seen the 29-year-old earning R23 million annually. It would then increase by R1.9 million in the first year, R2.8 million in the second and then R3.8 million in the final year. That would’ve seen the attacker spend the rest of his prime years at Al Ahly. 

Al Ahly ready to sell Tau?

Then according to the last report, Al Ahly had backtracked on that offer, opting to cash in on the player instead. It was then believed that the club went back to the drawing board and decided to continue with a new contract for Tau. But on revised terms which were not as lucrative.

Now according to KickOff.com as per Face Masr Al Ahly are willing to let Tau go for the right price!

“It has now been claimed that South African attacker Percy Tau’s future at Al Ahly has already been decided. The Red Devils are prepared to let the Bafana Bafana star depart if the right offer comes in, and are also set to part ways with Malian midfielder Aliou Dieng and French forward Anthony Modeste at the end of the season, according to Face Masr.” Wrote the publication.

Right time to leave?

There has been never ending rumbles about Tau’s future at Al Ahly, with a transfer looking increasingly likely.
