Galatasaray President Unal Aysal says that the club are willing to sell highly-rated striker Burak Yilmaz to Chelsea in January if an offer comes in for the Turkish footballer.
Galatasaray’s president said:
“If Burak wants to go and Chelsea are interested then of course the deal will happen.
“I favor Turkish players going to Europe to play in European leagues.”
According to the Metro newspaper, Jose Mourinho has been chasing the signing of the 28-year-old for the past 18 months. So if Chelsea are interested, Galatasaray are interested in selling him.
