Reading man looks set for Madejski exit



Fenerbahce have provisionally agreed a deal to sign Reading striker George Puscas, a report from Turkish outlet Yeni Akit Gazetsi has claimed.

Puscas only joined Reading last summer, moving from Italian giants Inter Milan for a club-record fee, reported to be worth up to €10million.

Since then, Puscas has gone on to score 11 goals in 33 appearances in all competitions for the club, helping the Royals to 14th in the current Championship standings.

Now however, it appears as though Puscas’ spell at Reading could be a brief one, with the latest reports claiming that the 24-year-old is close to a move to Turkey.

It is thought that Fenerbahce have already ensured a deal is in place to secure the services of the striker when the window reopens, with a loan-to-buy deal for Puscas suggested.

There are currently just over four years remaining on the contract Puscas signed with Reading last summer, securing his future at the club until the end of the 2023/24 season.

The Verdict

This is an interesting one.

Puscas performances for Reading have been rather inconsistent this season, so it is hard to know just how much they would miss him, should he make this move, although it would leave them short of options upfront, meaning there would be pressure on them to replace.

That being said, with the financial uncertainty that many clubs find themselves facing at the minute due to football’s suspension, allowing Puscas to leave could at least help Reading to secure their future from a monetary point of view going forward, suggesting this may be a deal worth considering.
