After a successful loan spell with AC Milan, Chelsea midfielder Mario Pasalic has attracted interest from Turkish giants Galatasaray.

The Turkish giants have reportedly made a bid for the 22-year-old Chelsea midfielder.

Turkish outlet Milliyet claim Gala’s manager Igor Tudor has contacted Antonio Conte personally to get a deal underway.

Tudor and Conte were in the same Juventus squad together, and the Galatasaray boss is hopeful this could help get a deal over the line.

Mario Pasalic joined Chelsea in 2014 from Croatian side Hajduk Split and has one year left on his contract with Chelsea.

Pasalic’s agent Marko Naletilic revealed earlier this year that his client is open to leaving  Stamford Bridge.

“We’ve still got to wait and see because he’s a Chelsea player and we need to decide what to do at the end of the season,” Naletilic said.

“The lad is happy at Milan, but I don’t want to make any predictions now. He’s just happy to be playing regularly for Milan.

“We would be willing to negotiate the possibility of him staying at Milan, but it will be Chelsea who decide what to do with him and this is important because it is Chelsea who own his registration.

“He’s been a fan of Milan since he was a child and he will always thank them for the faith the Rossoneri have placed in him. This might not mean anything, but it could also mean a lot.”
