Galatasaray's new president Dursun Ozbek has confirmed there have been no bids made for their goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.
Manchester United have been heavily linked with a move for a goalkeeper in a bid to replace David de Gea. The 24-year-old has been one of the top targets for Real Madrid this summer and reports suggest that the stopper is closing in on a move to the Spanish capital club.
Louis van Gaal already has Victor Valdes in the squad but believes he needs more competition to keep their best players performing at the top level. They may have to stave off interest from Arsenal, who have also been linked with the player but United's high financial resources make them favourites in a bidding war.
Muslera is touted to be among the best goalkeepers in Europe and a move to Old Trafford will give United a plethora of options in that position, something they need to put in a sustainable title challenge next season. However, Ozbek's recent comments suggest that United are yet to make a final offer, something they are likely to do in the upcoming days.
"We have not received any offers for Muslera," Dursun Ozbek told Fubol VIP.
The president had already revealed earlier in the month that they are not willing to sell Muslera this summer and that any bids for the player would likely be rejected.
"Muslera is loved by all Galatasaray fans. We will not sell him to any club. Galatasaray is one of the world's biggest clubs," Ozbek told Hurriyet.
United have also been linked with a move for Petr Cech and Hugo Lloris, with both players publicly revealing their desire to move this summer.
However, Cech wants to stay in London, where his family is currently housed, which has given Arsenal the edge in the transfer. The Gunners are in the market for a new number one, with Wojciech Szczesny failing to live up to expectations this season.
