Former Manchester City boss Mancini set to be appointed Galatasaray manager
Former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has reached an agreement with Galatasaray.
Galatasaray released a statement on the Istanbul Stock Exchange that talks have taken place.
The statement read: "Galatasaray are in talks with Roberto Mancini."
Mancini is expected to sign a three-year contract worth €5.5 million in addition to bonuses which could see his total salary rise to €6 million per-season.
The 48-year-old will replace Galatasaray legend Fatih Terim. The Turkish national team interim manager was sacked last week after the board reached a majority decision to terminate his contract.
Terim was appointed manager of Galatasaray on 2011 and went on to win back-to-back Turkish Süper Lig and Super Cup titles as well as guide the Lions into the quarter-finals of the Champions League last season.
Mancini was sacked by City at the end of last season. The Italian coach led the Citiziens to the Premier League title and had previous success with Inter Milan.
