- Mamelodi Sundowns' Gaston Sirino is still looking to leave Chloorkop and bag a move to Pitso Mosimane's Al Ahly side
- The saga has been ongoing for a while now but it seems like the move is inching closer with Sirino pushing for a deal
- Sirino's influence at Sundowns is no longer the same as the player continues to feel unsettled in his current role
Gaston Sirino of Mamelodi Sundowns has been linked with a move to Egyptian giants Al Ahly, and the Uruguayan has made no secret of his desire to join the 10-time CAF Champions League winners.
Sirino's association with Al Ahly dates back to just before the start of the previous DStv Premiership season when Pitso Mosimane left Sundowns to join the Cairo-based club.
Mosimane has made his pursuit of Sirino no secret, speaking about it on multiple occasions in the media. The former Bafana Bafana coach further claimed that the talented player wants to join Al Ahly and put himself to the ultimate test, according to The South African.

According to KickOff, while Sirino has remained at Chloorkop his influence in the team has dwindled and he has now openly said that he hopes the transaction may be revived now that the transfer window has reopened.
“My contract expires with Sundowns after two seasons, and my relationship is great with Pitso Mosimane, but I have not communicated with him for a while because of the circumstances,” said Sirino.
Sirino delayed his arrival to Sundowns' pre-season training earlier this month, fuelling speculation that he was seeking a switch to Al Ahly.
