Galatasaray is looking to cash in on one of their star players.

The club is reportedly willing to sell Fernando Muslera, their starting goalkeeper who has been with the team since 2011.

The Uruguayan international came to Galatasaray three years ago for about $15 million, and the club is now looking to sell Muslera for over $30 million.

For a club in financial trouble like Galatasaray, it might be more of a business decision than a personnel decision.

In a recent interview, the goalkeeper said he has always dreamed of playing in the Premier League, putting clubs on high alert for more news out of Turkey.

The Premier League is my childhood dream. It’s every players dream to play at a top club in England one day, however, that’s up to my club.”

Reports state Liverpool and Manchester City are both interested in Muslera, who has played in two World Cups for Uruguay. The Reds have been unhappy with the play of their keeper Simon Mignolet, while a move to City would cause a great battle between Muslera and Joe Hart for the starting role.

AC Milan are also reportedly lining up a bid for Muslera, who played in Serie A for Lazio before moving to Turkey.

While Muslera has expressed his personal desire to play for a Premier League club, Galatasaray will only be looking at the dollar signs when clubs start asking for their star goalkeeper.
