Galatasaray have joined the race to sign Antonio Valenica from Manchester United when the transfer window reopens in January, according to the Express.
Reports in Turkey suggest that the Ecuador international could be tempted to leave Old Trafford after falling down the pecking order.
The emergence of Belgian sensation Adnan Januzaj is likely to see Valencia’s chances even more limited, leading a host of European clubs to monitor his situation with the Premier League champions.
The Turkish champions, who last month appointed Roberto Mancini as manager, are considering a £12.5m that would see the player earn around £3.5m per year, though they are set to face competition from Everton, who are also interested in securing the 28 year old’s services.
The Toffee’s may be interested in the former Wigan Athletic man as a makeweight for any deal that could see his former teammate Leighton Baines move in the opposite direction.
