Galatasaray hope Fernando Muslera can aid their pursuit of Tottenham star Rodrigo Bentancur

According to Turkish outlet Aspor, Turkish giants Galatasaray are looking to sign Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Rodrigo Bentancur this summer. The team hopes that their captain, Fernando Muslera, will be able to convince Bentancur to make the move.

Bentancur went through a tough spell last season, missing 16 games due to two separate injuries. He ended up making just 25 appearances for Ange Postecoglou, managing to record a goal and an assist during that time.

Given his limited impact on the season and the recent controversy involving Son Heung-min, it isn’t surprising that the Lilywhites might be willing to let go of Bentancur this summer. Muslera’s influence could indeed be a decisive factor in making Galatasaray’s dream of signing the 27-year-old come true.

Muslera shares the pitch with Bentancur whenever the latter is on international duty with Uruguay. This connection could play a significant role in convincing Bentancur to join the Turkish giants, Galatasaray.

If Galatasaray signs Bentancur, they would have three Uruguayans on the team, including Lucas Torreira. Given Bentancur’s recent struggles, a move could indeed be in his best interests. However, it remains to be seen if we can secure what Daniel Levy will demand to let go of the player’s services.

Bentancur’s stint at Tottenham has been underwhelming.

So far, Bentancur has made 69 appearances for Tottenham, recording a total of 14 goal contributions. Considering his performance and the impact of his injuries, it is reasonable to say that Tottenham can let go of the 27-year-old without it being a significant blow to the team.

The potential move seems beneficial for all parties involved. Galatasaray would gain a talented midfielder with international experience, Bentancur would get a fresh start, and Tottenham could utilize the funds to further enhance their squad. The role of Muslera in this potential transfer could indeed be crucial in making it happen.
