Galatasaray looks at Mascherano and Arda Turan as possible options
Both players might be on their way out of the club this summer
Barcelona defender Javier Mascherano is yet again on the radar to leave the Camp Nou. Turkish club Galatasaray have their eyes set on the Argentine and according to Sozcu Gazetesi, they are ready to pay 5 million euros for the 32 year old.
Barça's been under major scrutiny this season due to their defensive problems, which may prompt the club to sell certain players in hopes of bringing in some fresh feet to the team. Nonetheless, Mascherano has recently penned a renewal contract that will hold until 2019 with the Catalans and desires to stay for another year.
Galatasaray are also interested in signing Arda Turan, as the Turkey international seems to be in the same boat as his Argentina pal. The midfielder failed to impress since his arrival from Atletico in 2015 and reports by Sport insist that he is on his way out from Barcelona with links to the Turkish club.
