Transfer Rumors – After the huge transfers of Ricardo Quaresma and now Real Madrid’s Guti Hernandez, Beşiktaş are lining up for a deal with Raul Gonzalez the Real Madrid veteran goal Machine.
According to sources close to Beşiktaş, Real Madrids once unstoppable goal machine has been lined up for a transfer to Turkish giants Beşiktaş after agreeing on principle to go to the Istanbul club.
Manchester United, Blackburn Rovers and Schalke were after the Spanish superstar, but Beşiktaş is rumored to be much closer to the legend after transferring team mate and friend, Guti on Wednesday.
It is also said that Beşiktaş boss Bernd Schuster has also had a big influence in the transfer of Guti and the likeliness of Raul coming to the Turkish club as the German manager worked with the pair while at Real Madrid.
Both players are said to be close to the German manager.
According to Atakan Kurt, a reporter at Lig TV (the equivalent of Sky Sports in Turkey), Beşiktaş board members have admitted to the Turkish clubs interest in Raul Gonzalez.
Atakan Kurt also cited a Beşiktaş manager who said regarding the alleged transfer news of Raul that they (Beşiktaş) have “agreed to terms and conditions with Raul” and that the player “currently has legal issues (regarding an unknown matter), after he appears in court, we will bring him to Turkey.”
The rumors of the Raul transfer has gotten thing more complicated at Beşiktaş, as there is a huge amount of foreign players at the Turkish club.
The only issue with this is that, Turkish Super League laws and regulations allow only six foreign players to play on the eleven players on field per a team.
Beşiktaş, should Raul come to the Turkish club will have 14 foreign players and will have huge problems as at least four foreign players will be sent from the squad.
