Besiktas and Galatasaray battle for Man United's Ibrahimovic

According to Turkish outlet 'fotoMac', the two Super Lig clubs are set to battle it out for the Swede's signature this January.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has reportedly caught the attention of Turkish giants Besiktas and Galatasaray, who both want to prise the forward away from Old Trafford

It is understood that Galatasary president Dursun Ozbeck is very keen on sounding out a potential move for the 36-year-old superstar whilst rivals Besiktas are looking to fill the void left by Cenk Tosun's £27million move to Everton last week. 

After an outstanding first season with the Manchester club, netting 28 times in 46 competitive games, Ibrahimovic signed a season-long extension last summer but has been plagued with injury since.  

The former Swedish international has only made five appeances for Jose Mourinho's side this season after suffering a cruciate ligament injury in his knee last April, which kept him out until mid-November and has since suffered a fresh setback

These fitness concerns, plus the summer arrival of striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton, have fuelled rumours of a potential move away for the player. However, whether Turkey is his destination is yet to be seen.
