“You never know. I think everyone in The Hague wants to see Elia very much. I will not lie: I want to see Elia very much too,” Ranković tells the camera of FOX Sports. ADO has already had a conversation with the 33-year-old winger. “Of course, that is also known. People here are concerned with him.”
“But I also understand the football world,” Ranković continues. “Elia is still a professional. And he is still very fit. We can only hope for this moment.” The Istanbul Basaksehir player has also been linked with a return to FC Twente, while Fenerbahçe and Panathinaikos would show interest from abroad.
Ranković thinks money is not the main motivation for Elia. “I don’t think it’s about the money. If we can feel the good feeling at Elia, I think we will have a chance.”
