Kevin-Prince Boateng’s agent has indicated that his client is unlikely to move to AC Milan or Galatasaray this summer.
Speaking to Bild, Edoardo Crnjar dicussed the Schalke midfielder’s immediate future, and admitted that Prince’s future was very much up in the air.
“I don’t think he will play at Galatasaray Istanbul or AC Milan. I don’t know what will happen,” the agent confessed, speaking to the German source.
He also went on to deny that Boateng will be moving to Fenerbahce, and confirmed that photos of him taken at the club was related to the transfer of Manchester United star Nani, rather than the Black Star.
“We met because our player Nani was joining Fenerbahce,” he confirmed.
Crnjar’s comments would appear to rule out two potential escape routes for KPB from his disastrous situation at Schalke.
The 28-year-old looks to have reached the end of the road with the Bundesliga side, having been indefinitely suspended towards the end of the 2014-15 season.
Even though his relationship with the Schalke hierarchy looks to have broken down completely, the club have confirmed that they will not let the player leave on a free transfer, and any potential suitors would need to offer the Royal Blues a fee to sign the international.
Boateng may now begin to seriously consider any approaches from Major League Soccer, with the likes of FC Dallas and New York Red Bulls having been linked to his signature.
Kaka is also understood to be keen to bring the Ghana international to Orlando City Soccer Club.
The former Tottenham Hotspur man managed 18 appearances in the Bundesliga last term—of which 11 were starts—and contributed three assists.
The box-to-box star won the Serie A and the Super Cup in 2011, having previously claimed the League Cup with Spurs three years beforehand.
