Mame Baba Thiam Linked with Iran’s Esteghlal
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iranian football club Esteghlal has set its sight on signing Senegalese forward Mame Baba Thiam.
The 26-year-old striker joined Ajman in August 2018 after leaving Esteghlal but he is reportedly not satisfied with his condition in the Emirati football team.
Now, Esteghlal, who finished third in Iran Professional League, has reportedly opened negotiations with Thiam.
Thiam scored 12 goals in all competitions in 13 appearances for Esteghlal and became so popular among the Iranian team’s fans, but left the team due to financial terms.
Esteghlal is going to sign Thiam once again but he is under contract with the Emirati football team until 2020.
