Turkish newspaper Milliyet report Manchester City’s Jason Denayer has given the Premier League champions an ultimatum over his future.
Last season Denayer was loaned out to Galatasaray and the Turkish side are keen to bring him back to Istanbul, a move the Belgian is reportedly interested in.
Denayer has reportedly told Manchester City: “Either let me go to Galatasaray or I won’t go to another club.”
This will be paraphrasing, as often happens in Turkey.
The Belgian defender won the Turkish Super Lig title with Galatasaray last season and the club’s manager Fatih Terim recently said it’s crucial for him to get Denayer back.
Milliyet say talks between Galatasaray and Manchester City are ongoing, and that Galatasaray would prefer a loan deal for the player due to FFP.
However, the Turkish newspaper believe Manchester City want a permanent deal for the player and they’ve lowered their demands to €6.5m. Galatasaray are only willing to offer €3.5m to sign Denayer outright if they can’t get a loan deal.
It’s claimed the Turkish champions are prepared to wait until the end of the transfer window to get a deal done for the player.
