Mancini flies out for Galatasaray?

Reports continue to suggest Roberto Mancini is in advanced negotiations to take over at Galatasaray.

Italian, English and Turkish media are all claiming the Coach is flying to Istanbul today in order to clinch the deal.

He was immediately the top pick after the club sacked Fatih Terim due to a contract dispute earlier this week.

He had at first turned them down, but it’s reported in the Daily Mail that Mancini will accept a three-year contract worth €5.5m per season with a €7m bonus package.

However, Sport Mediaset claim the deal is worth €7m for this season with an option for a second. It would include a clause allowing Mancio to walk away if he was offered the job of Italy Coach, as Cesare Prandelli is expected to leave after the 2014 World Cup.

Mancini has been out of work since he was sacked by Manchester City towards the end of last season.

He could be flying straight back to Italy, as Galatasaray play Juventus in the Champions League in Turin on Wednesday.
