Galaxy midfielder Nigel de Jong is currently in Turkey trying to finalize a move to Galatasaray, Galaxy coach Bruce Arena confirmed Tuesday.
Reports of the possible move surfaced Monday that de Jong, 31, was nearing a move to
the Turkish team. Initially, the Galaxy offered a no comment on the possible move. Arena elaborated a bit more on the potential move Tuesday.
“He’s pursuing an opportunity with our blessing,” Galaxy coach Bruce Arena said Tuesday. “He’s in Turkey. It either happens or it doesn’t.
“We have the greatest respect for Nigel. He’s been a terrific addition to our team, he’s a great professional, great teammate and when healthy and given a chance to play in this league, he’s been good. He’s a very good player. We don’t have an educated public that understands what he does. He’s been an important member of our team.”
According to the Major League Soccer Players Union, de Jong is making $500,000 this season. He joined the Galaxy this season and has made 18 appearances this season.
The club announced that it has “entered into exclusive discussions for the acquisition of the club by Mr. McCourt.”
McCourt purchased the Dodgers in 2004. The club filed for Bankruptcy in 2011 and McCourt eventually sold the club in 2012 to the current ownership group.
In a statement from Marseille, the goal is to have the transaction completed before the end of the year.
In a statement McCourt said: Being part of the Olympique de Marseille and helping the club achieve success both on and off the pitch would be an honor and privilege for me and my family. Not only is OM among the oldest and most respected football clubs in the world and the only French club to win the UEFA Champions League, it is one of the most iconic brands in all of sports. OM enjoys the passionate support of legions of fans in Marseille, throughout France and around the world. As the steward of OM, my ambition would be to help return the club to championship form, to deliver the best fan experience in all of football, to strengthen the club’s ties with the supporters and the city of Marseille and to guide the club to long-term financial stability.”
