Ahmed Fathi has agreed a three-year contract and will be earning an estimated amount of one million dollar per year.
Egyptian media say his departure was provoked by lack of game time as the Ahly legend and Egyptian national team captain has made only 17 appearances last season. Sources Ahly officials offered him a new contract but he turn down the offer to stay with the reds.
“Pyramids announces the signing of Egypt national team captain Ahmed Fathi on a free transfer” Pyramids issued the statement in Twitter when the deal was done in August.
His departure makes him the third Al Ahly SC legend to leave in the close season transfer window. Sherif Ekramy and Hossam Ashour have also announced their departure after the current campaign.

He enjoyed the best phase of football at Al Ahly where he made 338 appearances, scored 24 goals and made 61 assists to help the Club win ten league titles plus three CAF Champions League titles.
