Melo deadline 24 hours away

Turkish giants Galatasaray have just over 24 hours to complete the signing of Juventus midfielder Felipe Melo.

The Brazilian international has spent the last two campaigns on loan at Galatasaray, a club who have the right to sign him outright for €6.5m.

However, that option is only valid until April 30 and whispers in Turkey suggest that the outfit will allow that deadline to pass.

The 29-year-old was netted by the Turin giants in July 2009 from Fiorentina for a fee in the region of €25m.

If Galatasaray don’t do a deal then Melo will return to Turin where he will presumably be placed on the transfer list.
