AmkSpor is reporting that Galatasaray are close to signing Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini on a free transfer. Aksam also cover the claims online and say an outline agreement has already been signed ahead of the summer window.
This would come as a blow for Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho, who is a big admirer of the player.
The Turkish newspaper reports that Galatasaray met with Fellaini’s representatives last month, and according to their information a deal is pretty much sealed.
With the player’s contract with Manchester United set to expire in June, the Belgian can speak to foreign clubs and sign precontract agreement, and it’s reported his agent has been at work doing just that.
Fellaini had been strongly linked with a move to the Turkish giants in the last summer transfer window, but a deal didn’t materialise because they signed Badou Ndiaye instead.
However, after selling Ndiaye to Stoke City last month for a reported €16m, Galatasaray have yet to find a replacement. Faith Terim wants to see Fellaini in his team for next season so that he can partner him with former Manchester City midfielder Fernando.
