The former Galatasaray and Atletico Madrid centre back Tomas Ujfalusi has tipped Fernando Muslera to join Manchester United during an interview with the Bugun newspaper.
“I believe Manchester United are also interested in signing him [Muslera]. If De Gea joins Real Madrid then Muslera could be their first choice,” Ujfalusi was quoted as saying by Bugun.
“In my opinion he will be very successful at Manchester United.”
The Turkish newspaper Takvim have stated that the Manchester United are preparing an offer for Muslera and want to hold talks with the Uruguay international’s agent.
Muslera was one of the Galatasaray’s players of the season despite conceding a career high 34 goals over the Süper Lig campaign.
The 28-year-old kept five consecutive clean sheets – all of which ended in victories – at the most critical stage in the season helping the Lions lift the league title for a record 20th time.
Ujfalusi spent two seasons at Galatasaray after moving to the Istanbul giants from Atletico Madrid for €2 million.
The former Cezch-Republic international scored one goal in 41 appearances for the Lions.
