Beşiktaş in Ismail conundrum

Updated: March 29, 2016

Beşiktaş is doing very well this season, and one of the many players that stand out is Ismail Köybaşi. However, it is still uncertain where his future lies. Ismail’s contract expires at the end of this season.

Whilst Ismail was seen as one of the weak links at the start of this season, he has improved quite well under Şenol Güneş. This improvement made him a starter and he even got a call-up for the national team by Fatih Terim.

He is however, still not very far in the negotiations with his club. The reason for that is the salary he demands from the club, which is around 2,0 million euros. Ahmet Nur Çebi, the second most important man at Beşiktaş’ board, was surprised from his demand and told Ismail the following: “We want to keep you in our squad. That is certain. However, there is a balance, concerning salaries. We are unable to give you such a high salary. Think about this and we will talk later.”

Ismail told his teammates that he wants to stay at the club and that they will reach an agreement eventually.
