Reports: Potential swap deal involving Krunic and Fenerbahce defender gathers pace

By Euan Burns -

There is a growing chance that AC Milan and Fenerbahce will pull off a swap deal that would see Rade Krunic and a young player depart Serie A and a defender head in the opposite direction, a report claims. 

Various Turkish reports, including one from Sabah (via Pianeta Milan) have suggested that Milan could allow two players to join Fenerbahce in return for Ferdi Kadioglu.

Krunic has been linked with Fenerbahce consistently since the back end of the 2023 summer transfer window and whilst the interest cooled after a deal didn’t materialise, they are back in the frame for the Bosnian.

They also have an interest in 19-year-old Milan goalkeeper Lapo Nava, who could become part of any deal that sees Kadioglu arrive in Milan.

Kadioglu is 24 years old and is a very versatile player. He can play at right-back, left-back or in the midfield. He has two assists from 11 games in the Super Lig so far this season.

  1. Lol. I was wondering because I got a new phone recently and I thought it was the phone that was the problem so I thought maybe I’d ask as I saw everyone having to @ people in lieu of replying
    Oh well.
    Maybe they should have limit rated the replies or something

  2. A Swap would imply that this kid could slot in as a 6, which the article doesn’t really indicate. Bennacer playing as a 6 is great until he needs a break and then we’re back to fitting square pegs into round holes…
    I’m not a fan of Krunic, but if you intend to swap him, do so for a similar postition.

  3. It is better to sell in cashand than 10 to15M Couldbe used to bring both RB and LB with High Qualtiy such as the Feynood LB who is much better than Theo and then sell theo immidiately.

  4. We are aware of the issues some of you are experiencing with the comments, with some not posting and replies working sporadically.

    We’ll get someone to look into it!

  5. ACM1899 this is actually Ferdi Kadıoğlu stats and positions he has played throughout his career so it would seem we would get an even more alround player than krunic in the event of a deal as he has pretty much played every position on field.

    Attacking Midfield 56 5 9
    Right Winger 44 5 8
    Left-Back 37 2 6
    Right-Back 33 2 4
    Left Winger 23 7 5
    Right Midfield 19 1 –
    Left Midfield 19 2 1
    Central Midfield 15 3 3
    Second Striker 1 – –
    Defensive Midfield 1 – –

    I would question the validity of this potential deal though.

  6. Why would Fenerbahce trade their best player for a player whose contract is expiring?

    Minimum 35 million euros, those who underestimate can watch the Turkey-Germany match, he doesn’t have an exit clause. 😉

  7. “Why would Fenerbahce trade their best player for a player whose contract is expiring?”

    Because it’s the GOAT. Who wouldn’t want Krunic at all costs? I know Pioli would.
