Dries Mertens is expected to officially sign for Galatasaray in the coming days. Some Italian media even claim that the Red Devil has already signed a one-year contract, with an option for another year, and that he will be announced there in the next few hours. Mertens was without a club as his contract with Napoli ended a month ago.
The details of this Turkish proposal have been revealed in recent hours by Gianluca Di Marzio. To convince the 35-year-old player, the “Gala” will first break the bank. A salary of 4 million euros per year, with some additional bonuses. But it’s not just the financial aspect that makes the challenge interesting. The Belgian would have received 30 free flights to go to Naples, where he wants to continue to live as much as possible, but also to Brussels, to be able to pass through Belgium. His house would also be paid for and a driver would be made available to him.
Barring a big turnaround, Dries Mertens will therefore be at Galatasaray, with an ultimate challenge to take up.
