Fenerbahce deny interest in Chelsea striker yet again

Fenerbahçe will not be targeting Chelsea striker Falcao a source close to the club told Turkish-football.com.

The Yellow Canaries have been closely linked with the Colombian international over recent months but had denied having any interest in the experienced striker on more than one occasion.

The latest transfer speculation stemmed from a report published by the Takvim newspaper that claims Fenerbahçe and MLS side LA Galaxy are in a race to sign the former Atletico Madrid man.

The Yellow Canaries named and shamed all the newspapers involved in spreading the last transfer rumour linking Falcao with the club.

Fenerbahçe released the following statement regarding the transfer speculation: “The stories printed today in the AMK newspaper regarding Falcao…the Star newspaper regarding Falcao…the Fotomaç newspaper regarding Falcao…and the Takvim newspaper regarding Falcao are a lie we have no plans to sign the player.”

The Istanbul giants also released a similar statement when the Fotomaç newspaper claimed Fenerbahçe would be signing Falcao.

The Canaries released the following statement a few months back: “According to the Fotomaç newspaper we are going to sign Falcao over the transfer window. Our transfer committee are not actually considering making a move as we are happy with our strikers but considering how keen Fotomaç are to make the transfer happen we give them permission to go ahead and sign him for us.”

Fotomaç never did respond to the Istanbul giants proposal but went ahead and shared the same story a few months down the line anyway.
