Galatasaray are also considering an offer for United fullback Rafael according to Turkish sports newspaper AMK.

The report states that Hamza Hamzaoğlu wants to sign a right-back over the summer and that Rafael has been added to the shortlist.

The Lions have made strengthening at right-back a priority over the summer transfer window after Tarık Çamdal failed to settle in last season.

Sabri Sarıoğlu will remain the only the first-team right-back unless another fullback is signed.

Rafael provided one assists and scored one goals in 17 appearances for Manchester United last season.
