Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzoglu has confirmed that the Lion’s are interested in signing Manchester United’s Robin van Persie.
“We want to sign players who will both improve the squad and excite our fans. No manager would be able to say no to Van Persie,” Hamzaoglu told Fanatik.
“However, we cannot spend beyond our means. We hope to come to an agreement with him [Van Persie].”
The United striker has been closely linked with a move to Galatasaray and the Istanbul Giants board member Cüneyt Tanman was reported to have travelled to England to hold talks with Van Perise’s agent last week.
Van Persie stated that his future depends on what United have planned for him next season.
The 31-year-old striker wants regular first-team football and has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford over the summer.
“Things could change but that all depends on Manchester United, not me,” Van Persie told the Metro.
Van Persie will enter the final year of his Manchester United contract next season.
