Crystal Palace interest in player causes ‘conflict’ at club – No official bid as yet

Crystal Palace?s interest in Ozan Tufan has caused something of a conflict at Turkish club Fenerbahce.
The Eagles have been linked with the midfielder over the last week, with reports in Turkey stating that they and several other clubs were all keen on a move.
Indeed, Roy Hodgson?s side were believed to have made a bid of ?10m for his services, which was swiftly rejected as they were told by Fenerbahce that they wanted ?15m.
Those reports were denied by Fener chief Emre Belözo?lu yesterday, who insisted there had not been an official bid from Crystal Palace or anyone else.

While that may be the case, it seems the interest in their star man has caused something of a division between those higher up at the club.
Fotospor report that Tufan is one of the ?most discussed players? at the club with his situation being questioned by those in charge. There has been no official offer for him, but the club?s need to sell a player has led some to insist that they must sell should one come in.
This has been fought against by Emre, who believes the player, who is described as one of the ?cornerstones? of the team, should be left where he is to help the club compete for the title.
He is trying to prevent the management from a sale, with them keen to do a deal should Crystal Palace or any of his other suitors make a serious bid.
Thus, something of a ?conflict? has broken out at the club, who are seemingly waiting for the official offers to come in from around Europe...
