Is Emre a Target For Fenerbahce?
A published report in Tuesday's English news outlet "The Mirror" states that Newcastle United midfielder and Turkish national Emre wants to stay at St. James Park following their managerial change. The report also indicates that Emre is a potential target of two other high-profile clubs: Bayern Munich and Fenerbahce.
The 26-year-old Emre stated that he has three years remaining on his deal with Newcastle and intends to honor that deal. Earlier this season, Emre fought racism claims that proved to be unsubstantiated. The claims, brought upon by several players including American troublemaker Tim Howard, lead several sources to state that Emre may leave the English Premier League and possibly return to his home country to play in the Turkcell Super Lig. No direct contact between Emre and Fenerbahce has ever been confirmed, however.
With the claims behind him, it appears that Emre is determined to build the English club into a winner under their new leader.
