Fenerbahce’s management are divided on whether to sell midfielder Ozan Tufan to Crystal Palace this month.
That’s what fotoMaç report today, stating that the Turkish club are undecided on whether letting their star man go is a good decision for them.
Palace are keen to sign the midfielder this month, with several reports indicating that they have made a €10m bid for his services.
It was believed that the offer would be analysed in the coming days, although several reports have indicated the sale could be used to help fund a move for Arsenal’s Mesut Ozil.
Yesterday it emerged that the club’s response had been to let Tufan’s suitors, Crystal Palace among them, know they would not be selling for anything less than €15m.
That suggested a deal was there to be done, but fotoMaç pull things back today and state there is a division at the club over what to do.
They say that ‘some managers’ at the club oppose the sale of the midfielder, who has received offers from England and Russia.
Their belief is that Tufan is needed for their title push and have asked for any offers for him to be evaluated in the summer instead.
One of the offers is from Crystal Palace, who, alongside CSKA Moscow, have put €10m on the table for the midfielder, who has four goals and five assists this season.
That suggests Fenerbahce are very much undecided on what to do with the interest in Tufan and even if Palace or the other suitors match the €15m demands, they may have to wait to get their man.
