However the Dutch international has previously stated he is happy in Turkey, stating: “There is always transfer news about me.

“The transfer season is approaching so this type of news is normal, they always seem to escalate at this time of the year and I don’t think you really need to guess why.

“I don’t take any notice of these rumours. As I keep saying over and over again, I am very happy at Galatasaray, I feel at home here at the club among my friends.

“I have never considered leaving but the rumours continues. All I am focused on is the team.”

The 30-year-old previously worked under Man United manager Louis van Gaal for the Holland national squad, forming a good relationship in the country’s third place finish at the World Cup this past summer.
