Moroccan Striker Azaro Demands $400,000 Pay Rise per Month from Egypt’s Al Ahly

Moroccan forward Walid Azaro requests his pay to be bumped up to a whopping $400,000 per month.

In-demand Moroccan forward Walid Azaro has made a request for Egyptian champions Al Ahly to increase his pay, demanding a whopping $400,000 per month.

Walid was close to swapping North African football for China in the wake of overtures from cash-wielding Chinese Super League heavyweights Hebei China Fortunes.

Hebei lodged a $10 million offer for the Moroccan and succeeded in luring Cairo-based Al Ahly to the negotiation table.

All had looked done with only finer details delaying conclusion of the deal when the former African champions pulled the plug off the contact, citing lack of professionalism from the player’s Asian suitors.

The 21-year-old attacker -the biggest talent in the north side of Africa – would have earned over a $1million per month including other bonuses, hinging on how he adapts to the Super League.

A move would have acquired him marquee status and make him the highest paid talent to move direct from Africa to China.

And for collapse of the proposed transfer, the 19-goal star wants a commanding $400,000 pay rise from Al Ahly as way of compensation.

To remind the Egyptians of his worth, he netted the opener in their Champions League game against Township.

Ahly officials are yet to react to their star asset’s request who’s also the league’s highest scoring foreign footballer.

The Atlas Lions’ striker has a long-term contract and the Cairo-based side’s refusal to grant his request could be capitalised on by other wealthy teams to sign him away.
