The Summer 2018 Transfer Window Rumours and Deals

SWAP DEAL
Martin Skrtel’s Rangers transfer could be back ON – with Alfredo Morelos ‘going to Fenerbahce’


Reports in Turkey claim a swap between the clubs may be on the cards and it comes just weeks after the deal looked to be doomed

RANGERS and Fenerbahce are in discussions about swapping Alfredo Morelos for Martin Skrtel, according to reports in Turkey.

Yeni Akit claims a delegation from the Champions League outfit will travel to Glasgow for talks with Gers chiefs.

Steven Gerrard spent eight years alongside Skrtel, 33, and is keen to be reunited with the Slovakian skipper.

But SunSport told on Saturday how Newcastle were poised to hijack his bid to sign his former Liverpool team-mate.

Newcastle representatives had jetted out to Turkey in the hope of thrashing out a deal with the Istanbul outfit.

We revealed Gers were still in the running – but couldn’t come close to matching the wages on offer at the English Premier League side.

Morelos’ future is uncertain following Gerrard’s arrival in Glasgow.

Last month he was linked with Fenerbahce’s rivals Besiktas, with reports claiming he could move to Turkey on loan with a view to a permanent transfer.

The Colombian was the subject of an £8million bid from Beijing Renhe in the January transfer window.
The mega-rich Chinese side were willing to pay him a whopping £27,000-a-week AFTER TAX.

Axed Gers boss Graeme Murty admitted the saga left the former HJK Helsinki ace “confused” and he later signed a new contract until 2021.

He was nominated for the PFA Scotland Young Player of the Year award last season.

Would also explain the hesitance to get rid of Alves. I'd be very surprised if we held onto Alves with his wages and spent £5.5m on CBs if we weren't planning to play them all

If we're going to have to pay a significant part of Alves wages to get him out the door, surely there comes a point where you'd actually be better off keeping him and sqeezing some value from a player with an undoubted pedigree.

swap our only 22yr old prolific striker for some cash (it would have to be hefty) for 33yr old defender, who would probably want a hefty wage to be here`!

It is from the sun................to be taken with a huge pinch of salt!

How the fuck did Mr Martin Bain sneak back under the radar?

Exactly what I was going to say - the sticking point wasn't the transfer fee; it was the wages. If Morelos does go,  better using the cash to buy a couple of decent, younger players, than bowing to Skrtel's wage demands.
