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

Former Arsenal right-back Emmanuel Eboue has already parted ways with Galatasaray and Çamdal is also expected to leave.

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

Galatasaray already have two Brazilian players – Felipe Melo and Alex Telles – and former World Cup winner Claudio Taffarel is the teams goalkeeping coach.

Rafael’s future as a United looks extremely bleak after he fell out of favour with head coach Louis van Gaal and struggled to hold down a regular first-team spot.

Galatasaray won the league title for a record 20th time last season and booked a place in next seasons Champions League group stages.
