In recent weeks, there have been many rumors about the possible transfer of Paola Egonu in the next season. Ultimately, the Italian female volleyball opposite hitter would’ve accepted the offer of VakıfBank.
Egonu will definitely depart to Turkey at the end of the ongoing season. After rejecting millionaire offers from abroad in recent years, the superstar of the Italy National Team seems to have capitulated, which was confirmed from several sides. Of course, all the official details of her transfer to VakıfBank are awaited. An important confirmation came from Raphaela Folie, Egonu’s teammate from Prosecco Doc Imoco Volley Conegliano. The middle blocker talked about it in an interview with Tageszeit Dolomiten, who gave the permission for publishing to SportNews.bz.
“Yes, it’s true, Paola has signed for VakıfBank İstanbul,“ Folie left to no doubt and then talked about her status in the reigning world, European, and Italian club champions: “I like it here (in Imoco) and I feel good. I’ll start talks with the club in the next two months, but I also listen to other offers.“
