The Turkish giants have just changed coaches, with icon Fatih Terim stepping aside for former City assistant manager Domenec Torrent.
Miliyet says City manager Pep Guardiola was involved in the move, offering his recommendation to Gala on the hiring of Torrent.
Guardiola spoke with Gala president Burak Elmas during negotiations and agreed to leave the door open to placing City players on-loan with the Istanbul powerhouse to help Torrent.
City would be willing to send players to Gala this month, though it's more likely loan moves will be made over the coming summer.
