Thomas Partey’s agents recently posted a message, including a screenshot from a Transfermarkt post, teasing with names the clubs to which the player could be transferring to.
The post was removed later that day from the agents’ Instagram account, and they have since apologized for it. According to the post, Partey’s possible destinations included Manchester United, Arsenal, PSG, Bayern Munich and Juventus.
The organization has now released an apologising statement for the “unfortunate mistake” and promised to conduct an internal investigation.
The article, translated from Spanish, read: “With regard to the publication made on our Instagram account today, Wednesday, April 29, 2020, about the future of our player Thomas Partey, from J.J. Sport Managers, we wish to say that this publication has not been accepted by the company’s management.”
The Atletico Madrid star’s agents tried to assume accountability by stating, “The publication has been deleted as soon when we became informed of its presence, and the passwords for all of our social accounts have been changed to limit access only to important staff. With this statement we want to provide some clarification to any misunderstandings that might happen.”
The future of the midfielder was a hot issue not so long ago, with Arsenal being interested in signing the international Ghana. Last week, Partey’s father announced that his son had entered into negotiations with the Gunners over a summer move- going against the reports of his managers, JJ Sports.
But after posting this picture on their Instagram account, the agency itself added more fuel to the fire, asking fans to choose his next club on Wednesday.
