The Turkish club wants to recruit a Congolese central defender and offered about 8.5 million euros.
Although the carry window in Slessin has been more than calm since it opened, it can catch fire within 48 hours after closing. Until now, Standard has resisted various offers received for several players, including Marin, Mpoku, but also Luyindama. Krasnodar filed a firm offer in the amount of 5.5 million euros, plus a bonus rejected by the leadership of Liege. As we found out on December 8, Galatasaray placed Luindama’s name on the top of his list of employees.
In particular, he was sought in the Europa League match against Seville, in which he glowed to convince the Turkish club. In recent days, Standard and Galatasaray are negotiating. Turkish club made a strong offer. On Tuesday evening, the gap between the proposal and the requirements of Liege still seemed too important. This Wednesday everything can speed up, and Luindama can leave Slessin a few days after Sunday Classic!
The player’s entourage confirms that things are accelerating, but the Standard, which will wait for Galatasaray’s bank guarantees (a € 8.5 million offer is mentioned), does not intend to sell his central defender, who has taken on a lot in recent months. Galatasaray was limited to financial fair play and is currently selling its Brazilian defender Micon Japan for 4-6 million euros, which will free up the funds needed to hire Luindama.
In parallel with the case, Liège management should manage Uche Agbo, who wants to leave to get playing time, and Getafe and Rayo Vallecano are ready to provide a loan with the option of purchase.
