Alex, Fenerbahce Negotiating Contract Extension?
Various Turkish and Brazilian media outlets have reported that Fenerbahce star Alex de Souza and his agent are negotiating to extend the Brazilian's contract with Fenerbahce. Alex's current contract expires at the end of the 2006-2007 season. He has been linked with a possible move across the Bosphorous to rivals Besiktas, but he has indicated that he wants to stay in Kadikoy if Fener will match BJK's offer.
The Brazilian striker has had ups and downs during his time in Kadikoy. He's been a fan favorite at times, but this season has also been a target for fans frustrated at the lack of scoring. He seemed to quiet the critics after the 3-0 win over the weekend vs. Konyaspor, in which he increased his goal total for the season.
