Michael Beale Update on £4.7m International Transfer Reports

In the midst of fervent speculations surrounding the future of Romanian playmaker Ianis Hagi, Rangers’ manager Michael Beale has taken a firm stance against the recent reports suggesting an imminent move to Israel. Turkish sources claimed that Maccabi Haifa had tabled an offer for Hagi, igniting discussions about the player’s potential departure from the Scottish club.

Originally pegged at a modest £3 million, the reported transfer fee for Hagi’s prospective move underwent a rapid escalation. The Daily Record soon floated the possibility of the deal reaching an impressive sum of £4.7 million.

However, in an exclusive interview with Sky Sports immediately following a triumphant 2-0 win against Ross County, Rangers’ gaffer Michael Beale set the record straight. He adamantly denied the veracity of the claims connecting Ianis Hagi with an imminent move to Israel. Beale used this opportunity to provide a comprehensive update on the ongoing transfer dynamics within the squad.

“There’s nothing on that (Ianis Hagi to Israel),” asserted Michael Beale, dispelling the rumors that had been swirling around the talented playmaker. He took the occasion to shed light on the broader composition of the team, emphasizing the team’s sizable roster and acknowledging that it’s only natural for a few players to seek more playing time elsewhere. Beale went on to disclose that discussions had been ongoing regarding the possibility of players departing.

“We’ve got a really big squad so naturally I think one or two might look to go and get some football,” Beale remarked, providing insight into the team’s strategic considerations. He also alluded to another potential departure, mentioning Glen, a player who had been conspicuously absent from recent team activities. The manager’s openness continued as he addressed the situation surrounding Ianis Hagi’s exclusion from the squad in the latest match alongside Kieran Dowell, who had a minor injury concern.

“As the week goes something could happen but as it stands for now it’ll be more outs than ins,” Beale concluded, hinting at the intricate dance of player movements that often characterizes the transfer window.
