Ozbek: 'Players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic have played at Galatasaray before'

Galatasaray presidential hopeful Dursun Özbek revealed that he has not been in talks with Zlatan Ibrahimovic but underlined the club would be capable of signing the PSG star.

“The comments regarding Ibrahimovic are not mine, I have not commented on this before and it would be wrong to talk about transfers right now,” Özbek told AA.

“Galatasaray have signed players of Ibrahimovic’s caliber in the past but we will talk transfers at the end of the season.”
