Ianis Hagi Rangers transfer decision still to be made as agent admits 'it's hard to find a buyer'

Ianis Hagi's agent admits it will be hard to find someone to take him off Rangers' hands permanently.

The Romanian winger spent last season on loan at La Liga outfit Alaves and is not thought to have a future at Ibrox despite having a contract until 2026. He has impressed at Euro 2024 for his country but does not appear to fit into Philippe Clement's plans after previously finding it hard to get into the team under Michael Beale.

His agent, Giovanni Becali, insists the 25-year-old will report for pre-season at Auchenhowie though. He does admit there's a good chance he will end up on the move again, but that is likely to be on loan as the length of his deal and the handsome contract he is on makes it hard to sell him permanently.

He told Fanatik: “He has a contract with Rangers. He will go there for pre-season, start training and then the decision will be made if they will loan him. He has a bigger contract. It’s hard to find a buyer. He needs continuity.”

Becali's brother Victor recently fuelled rumours Jose Mourinho could take Hagi to Fenerbahce. But the player's agent has played down any talk of immediate interest.

“There is no discussion with Fenerbahce.", he insisted. “If there was a Romanian player at Fener, I would be called immediately. Mourinho only started (pre-season) training yesterday.

“I know the situation very well. If Mourinho needs a player, he would contact me. About Ianis, there were simple speculations. That doesn’t mean that if I had an offer for Ianis, I wouldn’t be interested.”
