Manchester United midfielder Kleberson is being courted by both Besiktas and Celta Vigo as his Old Trafford career nears an end.
The Red Devils rejected an improved offer from Besiktas last week but reports in Turkey claim the clubs have now reached a deal.
The fee has not been divulged but, while Besiktas may have an accord with United, they are struggling to tempt Kleberson to Istanbul.
Kleberson is rumoured not to be keen on moving to Eastern Europe and would prefer a deal with Celta Vigo to bear fruit.
However, Besiktas are refusing to concede defeat in their quest to land Kleberson, who is a top target for coach Riza Calimbay.
Besiktas are now employing recent signing Ailton in the role of go-between in a bid to talk Kleberson into joining the club.
Ailton arrived at the club from Schalke last month and the Turkish outfit hope the presence of a fellow Brazilian will convince Kleberson to sign for Besiktas.
