Nzonzi agrees Galatasaray move

Roma midfielder Steven Nzonzi has agreed to join Galatasaray on an initial season-long loan.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the deal is done and Nzonzi is ready to fly out to Turkey to complete his move.

Gianluca Di Marzio adds negotiations are close to being finalised, with Gala paying the entirety of his salary, estimated to be in the €3-4m region.

They will then have the option to buy the player or loan him for the following campaign.

Finally, Corriere dello Sport writes the option to buy is set at €15m, with €1m for the initial loan, although Roma are still trying to turn that into an obligation.

The Turkish champions will play in the Champions League this season after defending their domestic crown.

Nzonzi cost the Giallorossi €26.65m last summer, the 30-year-old having followed then-sporting director Monchi from Sevilla.

Despite making 39 appearances in all competitions, the Frenchman failed to truly impose himself at the Olimpico.
