The Royals and the Turkish club have entered a partnership which has been formed to share knowledge, scouting information and to organise friendlies but some fans feel that top players, including England-born Turkish midfielder Jem Karacan, could be pinched from the Berkshire outfit.
"It's about working together, not taking each other's players," Howe told BBC Radio Berkshire.
"(Galatasaray) have knowledge that Jem is a player of ours. There is no specific link, they think Jem is a player that has massive potential but so do we.
"So in terms of them thinking they are going to steal players, that is not how it works."
