Beşiktaş still negotiating a package deal for Dnipro duo

Updated: January 16, 2016

Beşiktaş continue to search for a goalkeeper and central defender to transfer this month. Denys Boyko and Douglas Silva have been heavily linked with a move to the Black Eagles and both sides even reached an agreement in principle, but the club hasn’t been able to convince Dnipro about the transfer fee. The negotiations about the transfer fee for both players are still ongoing, while both clubs also haven’t agreed about the payment terms yet.

Dnipro reportedly want € 3,5 million for Boyko and € 4,5 million for Douglas, which is a total fee of € 8 million for both players. The Ukrainians aren’t willing to lower their demanded price and have stated that there are other interested clubs as well. Beşiktaş are however only offering € 7 million for the pair.

Beşiktaş are capable of getting just Boyko, but wanting Douglas as well extends the time of concluding these negotiations. During the negotations the board has stated that both players want to come to Turkey and have even said that there are other players the club has already reached an agreement with and that negotations with Juventus’ Norberto Neto could be continued, so the transfer talks regarding the Dnipro duo could be discontinued if needed. The reason for this is to be able to buy both of their players at once.

The main problem blocking these transfers so far are the payment terms. Beşiktaş want to pay the fees in installments, while Dnipro want the sum paid in advance (probably due to their FFP issues). The two clubs will have another meeting next week and things will become clearer then.
