The Mohamed Elneny pay dispute with Besiktas is threatening to rear its head again, with the player reportedly giving his loan club another ultimatum.
Fanatik (via Turkish-Football) report that Elneny may have played his last game for Besiktas. Despite extending his loan deal to the end of the season, he is in a dispute with the club over unpaid wages.
This situation has been dragging on for a while now, but Elneny did return to the pitch and play in all of Besiktas’ matches since the restart. Reportedly, that was after the club agreed to pay half of their €600,000 debt.
Seemingly still waiting on the other half, Elneny is now refusing to train or play again. Besiktas manager Sergen Yalcin won’t force him to but will use the player if he’s available.
The chances of Elneny staying on with Besiktas after this campaign are now next to non-existent. He might not even last the rest of the month, if he chooses to cancel the loan on ground of non-payment of wages.
That’s going to leave Arsenal with another sale to sort out this summer, because they’re unlikely to want him back in the team. On the upside, at least Elneny is playing well right now. That should help in finding a buyer.
