Speaking to Turkish media about the prospect of Ozil moving to Fenerbahce. Emre said: “We had a meeting with him and his agent. It’s happening slowly, but Mesut is closer than ever to Fenerbahce.

The fact that Mesut’s childhood dream is still alive and Fenerbahce has such a dream has made this step so close for the first time.

“After Mesut is done with the negotiations with his club, we will have our own negotiations among ourselves.

Therefore, if Mesut can make a deal with his club on the terms we expect. It won’t be a burden for us financially considering our limits this year.

“Fenerbahce, or any club for this matter, can’t afford to pay salaries of 4-5m euros to football players anymore.

There’s no way we would pay amounts that would upset balances within Fenerbahce or affect other players’ salaries; we can’t afford that.”
