Mourinho and Terim talked about Altintop and Lass Diarra

Jose Mourinho and Fatih Terim had dinner yesterday at the Lesottomans hotel at 7:00 pm (local time). Both coaches have a good relationship, in fact, they give praises each other whenever they can, and Turkish coach asked Mourinho about the situation of Altintop and Lass Diarra.

The case of former Bayern player is easier. He has one foot in the Ottoman team, in fact, a newspaper in Turkey did a photomontage in which the Real Madrid player wears a shirt of Galatasaray. In the morning, Mourinho opened the door to a possible transfer: "Hamit is a very important player in Turkey. I have a great relationship with him. He is a great player and a great person. I would be happy if he stays, but if he wants a change of air, is his life. If he wants to return to Turkey, if he thinks it is the best for his career, we will help him". In addition, Terim coincided with Altintop in his time as coach in Galatasaray and the player is a recognized Galatasaray fan since childhood. In Turkey some claim that the club could pay him nearly 3 million euros per season (in Real Madrid earns 2.2) and would sign as a free agent.

The case of the French player is different. Lass Diarra has signed a preliminary agreement with Galatasaray, as reported by Spanish media, but Real Madrid does not have a firm offer for him and he will not leave the white team as a free agent. As reported in Turkey, the Ottoman club could expect to pay eight million euros for his transfer. Terim wants a man to replace Felipe Melo and Nuri Sahin is not for sale, so he talked his friend Mourinho about the possibility of selling them Lass, but there is nothing definitive.
