A source in Turkey have doubled down on their claims that Rade Krunic wants to join Fenerbahce by stating that he has asked to leave AC Milan.
Yağız Sabuncuoğlu of SportsDigitale reported earlier today that Fenerbahce have submitted a new offer of €7m to Milan for Krunic, showing that they have not yet given up on the idea of luring the Bosnian to Istanbul.
Now, the same source are claiming that Krunic has put in a transfer request to try and push through a move to join his friend and compatriot Edin Dzeko at Fenerbahce.
The source are adamant that the former Empoli man has submitted a formal transfer request asking the Rossoneri to sell him, but the final offer from Fenerbahce is only €7m which is below the club’s asking price.
That leaves the club in a tricky position as they must either stand firm on their asking price and try get more from his sale but risk keeping an unhappy player or sell for below what they believe Krunic is worth and have less funds to sign a replacement.
