Stanciu leaves Sparta
Nicolae Stanciu moves to Saudi Arabia club Al Ahli. On Mondray, Romanian midfielder flew from camp in Marbella to Dubai for negotiations. Both clubs finished the transfer during last days.
The Romanian midfielder received an offer from Egypt at the end of last year and asked Sparta for release. Due to the fact that the financial parameters of the transfer did not fulfil the requirements of ACS management, Stanciu stayed in the squad. Then he had started the pre-season with the first team and travelled to camp in Marbella. Now he has asked for release again because of the offer from the club of city Jeddah.
"Nico received an offer from the Arabian club of such amount that we did not want and could not compete. In addition, Al Ahli has fulfilled our notion of the transfer price. Despite all of this... Nico has known that even if the clubs would agree on the transfer and he would not be interested in the transfer, we would be happy to have him with us, "said Sports Director Tomáš Rosický.
Stanciu had become Spartan in January 2018, so played one year in red jersey. The fans will remember him especially because of his first half a year when he scored during his first league match against Liberec and twice in the derby.
"Nico Stanciu is a great player and exemplary professional. We thank him for all his work here and we wish him good luck," added Tomáš Rosický.
