Rumours suggesting Jose Antonio Reyes, Diego Forlan and Tomas Ujfalusi have all been sold to Galatasaray are picking up steam amidst reports in the Turkish media claiming Atlético have agreed to a bulk sale of the trio.
According to AS, reputable Turkish paper NTVSpor report that Galatasaray president Unal Aysal met with Enrique Cerezo at the Vicente Calderón Thursday morning, and secured a combo deal for Reyes, Forlan and Ujfalusi.
There has been no talk of transfer fees for any of the players.
The sale of Forlan and Ujfalusi will likely, depending on their sales prices, not leave many tears on Rojiblanco cheeks. However, it seems inconceivable that Atleti would consider selling Reyes given that he is our only proven, star quality player left on the squad with the more than likely departures of De Gea and Agüero.
Turkish media reports are notoriously unreliable, so no need to jump off that cliff just yet Colchonero.
Or maybe it is time to jump the cliff…
UPDATE: Galatasaray have confirmed negotiations are in place on their official website.
The statement by the club reads:
“Club Atletico de Madrid footballers, Diego Forlan, Jose Antonio Reyes and Tomas Ujfalusi have initiated negotiations with Galatasaray. The public will be informed of developments.”
