According to reports in Turkey, Antonio Valencia is a target for Roberto Mancini's Galatasaray

Come with me, TBB faithful, into the weird and wonderful world of Google Translate. In the distant past, rumour-hungry readers such as yourselves would have had to wait for one of the papers to do the legwork on this one. But no more!

When entering the last week in the league, the Champions League, Galatasaray captured a significant advantage towards joining arms in plaster for external transfers have.

Erm.

Yellow-red is the number one target of the external transfer of Manchester United's Ecuadorian Antonio Valencia star. President of the lunar Unal this transfer period "strawberry" is seen as Valencia, one year contract with the club Manchester United have.

Right.

Disillusioned Manchester United this season after Ferguson 'can not find the chance to form the desired level of Valencia is now the request to leave Manchester City manager has learned that the transmission.

Yep, okay.

Galatasaray Valencia initiatives to begin to separate cert that Drogba instead Preimum League for many years successfully have played with a player aims to strengthen kadso.

Well, it's obvious really. Galatasaray, currently under the direction of former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini, are looking for somebody to replace Didier Drogba. Antonio Valencia, who is unhappy that Ferguson left and disappointed in his own form, is the obvious candidate. That's according to Turkish web outlets BugünKralspor and Hürriyet, anyway, and who are we to argue?

Now, the only reason we mention this is not because it's been a quiet day on the news front, oh no. It's because this isn't the first time that Valencia has been linked with a move to the Turkish side. As far back as October, the Daily Mail had him moving for £12.5m, and while Valencia's disappointing season might have knocked that fee down a bit, it nevertheless makes sense. As much sense as any half-translated rumours on the internet ever will, anyway.

(In case you missed it, Spencer Hall's piece on the Istanbul derby is pretty great.)
