Turkish giants make a move for Manchester United star after missing out on Liverpool midfielder

Jose Mourinho has been one of the busiest managers in the transfer market this summer.

He has bought in a number of top class talent from around the world and has managed to build a team that is now one of the strongest not just in England but also in Europe.

But with just around 10 days left for the new season, Mourinho will be looking to clear the dead wood from his squad and will hope to off-load players who may not play a role in his squad next season.

He will also have to deal with offers for players who he does not want to sell. Though not many players would want to leave a club like Manchester United, the manager will have to make sure that he has the right combination ahead of the next season.

One such player who may not be leaving United in a hurry is Marouane Fellaini.

The Belgian international was always a utility player playing at various positions for the club since his move from Everton a few seasons ago.

He found a place in Van Gaal’s midfield on a regular basis but he was not having the kind of an impact expected from him.

However, the new manager at the club, Jose Mourinho, has taken a liking to the 28-year old and has urged his fans to back the Belgian this season. He also started the game at the weekend against the Cherries.

That has no stopped clubs from around Europe scout for him and it is now understood that Turkish giants Galatasaray have got an eye on him for a move this summer.

Reports in Turkey have revealed that Turkish outfit has turned its attention towards the former Everton man after seemingly missing out on Lucas Leiva from Liverpool.

Galatasaray are in a desperate search for a midfielder and were close to signing the Brazilian from Liverpool but Jurgen Klopp, the manager at Anfield is not ready to let go of Lucas and has blocked a move for the player.

So the Turkish outfit have now seemingly turned to Fellaini to fill the gap in their midfield.

It is however reported that the Belgian is happy to stay at Old Trafford and fight for his place and is not yet ready for a move.

Do you think Manchester United need Fellaini in their midfield this season?
