Galatasaray have decided against making an approach for Christian Eriksen in the final days of the Turkish transfer window but they will likely step up their interest in the Manchester United midfielder in the summer, a source has told ESPN.
The January transfer window in Turkey closes on Feb. 9 and although Galatasaray were interested in Eriksen, there is little confidence that a deal can be done before the deadline.
Eriksen is now set to stay at Old Trafford for the rest of the season, but a source has told ESPN that Galatasaray are keen to revisit a deal for the Denmark international in the summer.
The 31-year-old, who arrived at United on a free transfer in 2022, has a contract until 2025.
United have won their last three games with a midfield three of Mainoo, Casemiro and Bruno Fernandes with Eriksen an unused substitute.
Eriksen’s last start was in the 2-2 draw with Tottenham on Jan. 14.
United have the option of making the Morocco international’s move permanent at the end of the season for a set fee of €20 million ($22.5m) plus another €5m ($5.3m) in add-ons.
