In a post on Facebook and Twitter, AC Milan target Jose Sosa has explained his situation with Besiktas, after flying to his homeland Argentina.

After being linked with AC Milan, Jose Sosa decided to leave Turkey, but not because of his potential move to the San Siro. On Facebook and Twitter, he explained he’s asked Besiktas to sell him due to his family being afraid of living in Istanbul. Read his full message below:

“I need to inform what is happening with my situation. I will explain this only one time. I asked for my transfer from Besiktas, and I need this because I have some personal problems with my family. The point is that my wife is afraid of living in Istanbul, Turkey, and I have fear for my daughters too.

“The last attack at the airport was very close to us, and my agents were there two hours before. After this, my family and I have decided to leave Istanbul. I have two daughters and they are a miracle and I want to protect them My number one priority is my family, so football is now my secondary priority.”

“I won’t negotiate with Besiktas for a new contract, we’re looking for the best solution. I’ve already asked Besiktas representives to help with because I don’t want to play football far away from my family. I very thankful to Besiktas for helping me and my family.”

“We’ve gone through two exceptional years, but I have to take this decision”
