Galatasaray are plotting a move for Manchester United outcast Marcos Rojo a source close to the Super Lig outfit informed Turkish-Football.
The reigning Turkish league champions are in the midst of a defensive crisis with Luyindama out for the rest of the campaign.
Galatasaray have made signing a new defender a priority and Rojo is among the names on the shortlist.
The Lions would only be able to sign the Argentina international on a loan move due to Financial Fair Play commitments.
Rojo has another 18-months remaining on his United contract with an option to extend by an additional season but he has made just three Premier League appearances.
In total, the 29-year-old has played just 648 minutes of first-team football this term.
Galatasaray would be able to offer regular playing time with a first-team spot and he would remain on a similar pay packet.
The Yellow-Reds could face competition from rivals Fenerbahce who have also been linked.
The Yellow-Navies are however, currently without a sporting director following Damien Comolli resigning.
Galatasaray are currently 10 points behind league leaders Sivasspor at the half-way point in the season.
The Istanbul giants have won the championship for the past two seasons.
