Besiktas Courting Alex de Souza?
Reports surfacing out of Istanbul indicate that Fenerbahce star Alex de Souza could exit Kadikoy for a trip across the Bosphorous if Fener does not come to terms with him on a new contract. Besiktas, who signed former Canary Marcio Nobre after last season, has expressed interest in the Brazilian-born player and could offer him $3.5 million per year. Alex, however, has indicated that he would likely stay with Fenerbahce if they offer him at least $3 million. Alex has indicated that he would indeed go to Besiktas if Fener doesn't meet his offer, but it appears to be a ploy for a new contract with Fenerbahce at this point. Stay tuned as the story continues to develop.
