It was thought a bid of around £25 million would be enough to sign the 29-year-old, but the Turkish club’s president Dursun Ozbek has revealed that he is keen to keep the Uruguay international.
“£18m (€25m) is not enough, £25m million is not enough,” said Ozbek, “We want him to stay until the end of the season but if we receive a higher offer we could consider.”
£35 million is thought to be the mark where Gala will start to think about accepting a bid, which is a massive fee for a goalkeeper. The Red Devils may still be tempted to pay if David De Gea leaves Old Trafford. The 24-year-old has been heavily linked to a move to Real Madrid, and it would be a major issue if he were to depart.
