Manchester United defender targetted by Turkish giants

Turkish giants Galatasaray have made a cut price offer for Manchester United full back Antonio Valencia.

Turkish newspaper AMK claim that Galatasaray have made a £1.3million offer for the former Wigan Athletic winger after watching him first hand during their recently friendly in Gothenburg, Sweden, where Valencia grabbed three assists in a 5-2 victory.

Valencia has been in fine form during Manchester United’s pre-season, and is battling with Italian full back Matteo Darmian for a regular position in Jose Mourinho’s squad.

If the Turkish club can agree a fee with United, they are ready to offer the 31-year old a four-year deal.

They are also interested in signing Valencia’s Manchester United teammate, Bastian Schweinsteiger, who has been told that he is surplus to requirements at Old Trafford.
