Turkish giants to bid for Man City defender

Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy

Big spending Turkish club Galatasaray are set to make a move for Manchester City left-back Gael Clichy in the summer, according to the Daily Mail.

Clichy has two years left on his current deal at the Etihad and wants to stay in the Premier League despite the interest from abroad.

Galatasaray are looking to become a real force in European football once again after the marquee signings of Didier Drogba and Wesley Sneijder in January.

An audacious £12million bid for Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben is also set to be submitted as the Dutch midfielder doesn’t appear to be in the plans of new boss Pep Guardiola.

Fellow City defenders Joleon Lescott and Kolo Toure are also said to be on the ambitious wish-list of the rich Galatasaray owners.

While Clichy is set to stay at the Etihad, Toure and Lescott may see their futures elsewhere after disappointing seasons sitting on the City bench.
