Trabzonspor president Agaoglu demands Sheffield Utd go higher for Cakir

Trabzonspor president Ahmet Agaoglu is pushing Sheffield United to go higher for Ugurcan Cakir.

It broke over the weekend that Agaoglu had accepted a €20m offer from the Blades for the Turkey goalkeeper. However, Fanatik says he is now pushing the Blades to go higher to €22m.

Agaoglu is using competition from Leeds United and Brighton to put pressure on United. The Blades went from €15m to €20m after both Premier League rivals had made contact with Trabzonspor.

As Trabzonspor and United continue to haggle, the other major stumbling block to overcome is Agaoglu's insistence of a 15 per cent cut of any sell-on fee being agreed.

Should Cakir leave for Agaoglu's valuation, he will become Trabzonspor's most expensive sale.
