With the Turkey international out of favour at Barcelona, it was expected that the player would again be loaned to Fenerbahce - the club he spent the latter part of last season with.
Rustu is a firm favourite at the Turkish club having played there before his move to Barca - but another loan is looking increasingly in doubt.
Fenerbahce would require Barca to pay a percentage of the player's wages if he spent next season on loan with them, something the Catalan side are understandably reticent to do.
This has prompted speculation that Celtic could be prepared to take advantage of the situation and try to snap up the keeper.
Rustu is desperate to be a regular, with the goalkeeper aware that his position in Turkey's World Cup squad would be under threat if he was not getting regular first team football.
