Celta Vigo manager Fran Escriba has confirmed that out of favor winger Emre Mor will be leaving the club.
Escriba was quoted by Sporx as saying that it would probably be best for player and club if Mor were to part ways.
“Emre Mor is leaving but the club are dealing with that. He is a good player but it would be in his and the clubs best interests to go our separate ways,” Escriba said.
The latest development follows Turkish-Football reporting yesterday that Mor is close to completing his move to Galatasaray.
The 21-year-old is currently in Turkey holding talks with the Lions over a summer move.
Galatasaray manager Fatih Terim wants Mor despite being aware he presents a risk with his controversial off the field behavior that has landed him in trouble over recent years.
Mor was effectively thrown out of the Celta team towards the end of last season after being spotted running around a swimming pool on social media while he was supposed to be injured.
Terim worked with Mor during his time in charge of the Turkey national team.
Galatasaray president Mustafa Cengiz also confirmed that Mor could be ‘returning home’ – he has said in the past that he grew up a Lions fan.
Turkish-Football quoted Cengiz saying: “Emre Mor is a really talented player but he has gone through a lot pain growing up. I feel like he is returning home but I cannot say anymore now I have to wait for the KAP announcement.”
