Galatasaray offer Patrick van Aanholt three-year deal and a sharp increase on his £55k-a-week wage as he edges closer to the end of his Crystal Palace contract in June… with talks over a Selhurst Park extension at an impasse
- Patrick van Aanholt is nearing the end of his contract at Crystal Palace
- He has been offered a three-year deal at Galatasaray with a big pay increase
- Dutchman is still in discussions with Palace but extension talks are at an impasse
- A move to Galatarasay would likely see Van Aanholt play in Champions League
Galatasaray have offered Crystal Palace defender Patrick van Aanholt the chance to join them next season.
The Dutch left-back’s existing deal expires at the end of the season and as yet no agreement on a new deal has been reached.
The defender has been free to discuss pre-contracts with foreign clubs since January and Sportsmail understands Turkish giants Gala are among the clubs to have shown serious interest in Van Aanholt.

Van Aanholt is out of contract at Palace in the summer and talks are now at an impasse
The proposal is understood to be a three year contract with a sharp increase on his reported £55,000-per-week deal with Palace.
Likewise, a move to Istanbul would likely see Van Aanholt have the opportunity to play Champions League football next season with Gala currently occupying second place in the Turkish Super Lig – three points adrift of leader Besiktas.
Van Aanholt turns 31 in August meaning this deal will likely be his last major pay day.
The full-back has been a consistent performer for Palace since his arrival in 2017 and is a key man for manager Roy Hodgson.
Indeed, Van Aanholt is open to staying at Selhurst Park but discussions over an extension are understood to be at an impasse, news which has alerted teams across Europe – including Galatasaray.
