Mancini to replace sacked Terim?

Galatasaray have sacked Fatih Terim just days before their match with Juventus and Roberto Mancini is favourite to take over.

The news was confirmed by a statement from the Turkish side this evening.

It was reportedly down to both the 6-1 Champions League home defeat to Real Madrid and his refusal to accept a new contract.

According to several Italian and Turkish sources, former Manchester City manager Mancini is already in Istanbul for negotiations.

Galatasaray are due to face Juventus in the Champions League on October 2 in Turin.
