Euro outfit keen on 27-year-old Tottenham ace, compatriot could play a key role in the move

By Saikat -

Galatasaray are interested in signing Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur this summer.

After making a name for himself at Juventus, Bentancur arrived at the North London club in the winter of 2022. The move to Tottenham hasn’t worked out for the Uruguayan international and he has struggled with quite a few injuries.

Last season, he was involved in 25 matches and could only rack up just over 1,100 minutes of first-team action. While he still has two years left on his deal, Galatasaray remain interested in his services.

According to Haldun Domac, the Turkish outfit could use their skipper Fernando Muslera to convince his compatriot to join them.

The Turkish football commentator said via Milligazete: “Fernando Muslera stepped in for Bentancur. ‘ Come to Galatasaray and let’s play together.’ His departure from Tottenham is in question. Muslera’s persistence could be a positive result.”

The 27-year-old’s future at Spurs is uncertain. With Ange Postecoglou looking to add more depth and quality to his squad, Bentancur might not get enough minutes next season even if he manages to remain fit. Tottenham might prefer cashing in on him and using the money raised to push for other targets.

Meanwhile, Galatasaray feel the Uruguayan international could help solve their problems in the centre of the park and they are persistent in their pursuit of the player. They have already reached out to the player regarding a move and their skipper Muslera is trying to convince him to make the move to Turkiye.

Bentancur will look to get his career back on track and regular football at Galatasaray could be ideal for him.
