GALATASARAY have entered the race to sign Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini.

Fellaini, 29, is a free agent at the end of the season and has rejected a new contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

United boss Jose Mourinho is keen to keep the Belgian international, who has become an integral part of his plans, at United and wants a deal agreed before the midfielder is free to talk to overseas clubs in January.

SunSport revealed this week that Valencia are prepared to offer the big midfielder a lucrative deal to move to Spain next summer and want him to pen a pre-contract in January.
