Fernando Muslera: Links to Spurs dismissed

Galatasaray have released a club statement to officially deny reports that Tottenham have made a bid to sign goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.

The 29-year-old, who joined Galatasaray from Lazio in 2011, has appeared in all of the club’s league games this season.

But amid reports Spurs were hoping to sign the Uruguayan to provide cover and competition for No 1 Hugo Lloris, an official club statement from Galatasaray read: “No offers have been received from Tottenham Hotspur nor have negotiations taken place for our goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.”

Muslera, who was has won 77 international caps, was linked with a switch to White Hart Lane by the Turkish media earlier this week.

UEFA suspended Galatasaray from European competition for breaching financial fair play rules earlier in the week while Mustafa Denizli also resigned as manager after just three months in charge.

The future of the club’s star players has been a source of speculation since the ban, with Champions League football unlikely to be on offer at the Türk Telekom Arena next season as things stand.
