Manchester United set to make €35 million bid for Fernando Muslera

Chelsea transfer news

Manchester United have launched an audacious €35 million bid for Fernando Muslera according to the Turkish newspaper Vatan.

The daily newspaper states that the Red Devils have set their sights on bringing in a new keeper with David de Gea expected to depart Old Trafford this summer.

Galatasaray president Dursun Özbek recently issued a hands off warning to clubs linked with Fernando Muslera.

“Muslera is loved by all Galatasaray fans,” Özbek told the Hurriyet newspaper.

“We will not sell him to any club. Galatasaray is one of the worlds biggest clubs.”

However, a €35 million bid will surly test the Galatasaray president’s resolve especially with the clubs recent financial troubles.

Galatasaray had previously stated that they would not even consider bids below €20 million for the Uruguayan keeper.

Muslera was one of the Galatasaray’s players of the season despite conceding a career high 34 goals over the Süper Lig campaign.

The 29-year-old keeper kept five consecutive clean sheets – all of which ended in victories – at the most critical stage in the season helping Galatasaray lift the league title for a record 20th time.
