Inter midfielder Joao Mario could be heading for Galatasaray and they’d be prepared to take him without a loan deal.
The Portugal international was not even called up for the friendly with Valencia, suggesting he is definitively out of their plans for the current campaign.
According to Claudia Garcia, Portuguese transfer expert based in Italy, there are negotiations for a permanent transfer to Galatasaray.
This would be excellent news for Inter, who until now had mainly dealt with proposals to take Joao Mario on loan with option to buy.
The 26-year-old has also been linked with Monaco, Bayer Leverkusen and RB Leipzig, while talks with Wolverhampton Wanderers broke down before the Premier League deadline.
