Turkish side Galatasaray are readying offers for Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini and Chelsea’s John Obi Mikel, according to Haberler.

The Super Lig side were beaten to their domestic title by Istanbul rivals Besiktas in 2015-16 and as such are said to be keen to make a splash in the transfer market this summer.

Question marks remain over Fellaini’s future at Old Trafford since the appointment of Jose Mourinho and the world-record acquisition of Paul Pogba this summer.

However, the towering Belgian battler started in United’s opening Premier League fixture yesterday, playing the full 90 minutes of a 3-1 win over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.

Mikel is expected to be on the fringes of the action at Stamford Bridge, especially as Antonio Conte has signed N’Golo Kante this summer and has a plethora of options in the boiler room.

The report also suggests that Galatasaray could turn to Newcastle United star Cheick Tiote if moves for Fellaini or Mikel are not successful.
