Claims from Turkish outlet Takvim allege today that Alfredo Morelos’ agent has offered him to Fenerbahce, amid instruction from the Colombian to find him a new club.
The former HJK man now finds himself both out of form, favour, and place at Ibrox, with his current position inside Rangers never having been lower.
His actions at Easter Road did not ingratiate himself to supporters at all, while Giovanni van Bronckhorst simply axed him from the squad to face PSV, knowing full well the striker was well off the motivation, pace and fitness to provide a meaningful contribution.
Manager Gio has suggested there will be talks about his future, and that he could have a future, but it is down to him.
But it seems Morelos himself wants out, and frankly, there are a lot of fans so seduced now by the brilliance of Antonio Colak that they’re not too bothered about the Colombian any longer either.
If it is true that the Super Lig giants are looking at signing him up, his market value supposedly is around £10M but being in the last year of his deal, Rangers may only get half for a player who has become dispensable and wants out.
Of course, some could point to French Eddie in the same shoes – wanted out, final year, and they still got approaching £20M.
Morelos is the same, and with Rangers’ finances we don’t need to sell him any more. If Rangers are to part company and ship him to Turkey, it should be on our terms and we should hold out for the highest fee feasibly possible.
Ajax just sold Antony for £85M to Man Utd, we could easily have got more for Calvin Bassey ourselves. Why sell Morelos for a modest amount?
Either way, we’ll see how things evolve with him over the next few days before the window shuts
