Felipe Melo set for Galatasaray

Galatasaray are leading the chase to sign Felipe Melo from Italian giants Juventus.

The Brazilian has confirmed that he will be leaving the Turin outfit this summer after holding talks with club officials.

Paris SG have shown an interest in the player, but it seems as if the Turkish side will net the midfielder.

It is claimed that Melo will move to the Istanbul outfit on a season's loan with the option to buy outright next June.

Gala will pay Juve2m for his temporary services.

The South American was acquired by Juve in the summer of 2009 for €24m from rivals Fiorentina.

Galatasaray have already dipped into the Italian market this month by signing Uruguayan 'keeper Fernando Muslera.
