Galatasaray back in Melo contention

Felipe Melo can welcome back Galatasaray to the mix of clubs reportedly interested in signing him permanently from Juventus.

The Brazilian midfielder spent last term on loan with the Turkish giants, but their ability to make his switch permanent looked at risk due to the fee believed to be asked for by the Bianconeri.

However, after UEFA suspended three Turkish sides from Europe for 2012-13 due to financial irregularities, Galatasaray’s award of a place in next season’s Champions League is reportedly enough to re-enter them into negotiations.

Bayern Munich and Spartak Moscow are also understood to be talking to Juve about the €10m-rated player, who turns 29 tomorrow.
