Turkish giants willing to pay £3m for Man Utd ace

Turkish giants Galatasaray are willing to pay £3 million for Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger according to the Telegraph.

The report claims that the Istanbul giants are keen on the Schweinsteiger following uncertainty over the transfer of Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva.

Galatasaray have been closely linked with Lucas over the past week with sporting director Levent Nazifoglu revealing that an agreement with Liverpool has been reached but that head coach Jurgen Klopp has been digging his heels in.

The Lions were supposed to have received a response from Klopp on Monday evening and have started preparing for alternatives.

Schweinsteiger has been sent to train with the reserves, was left out of the pre-season and not included in friendly games over the summer as well as the Community Shield claus against Leicester City.

Mourinho has made it clear that the former World Cup winner does not have a future at the club and following the arrival of Juventus star Paul Pogba he will be almost certain to part ways with United.
