2017-2018 season: €2.150.000
2018-2019 season: €2.150.000

Galatasaray completed the transfer of Cigerci from Hertha Berlin yesterday paying a €3 million transfer fee on a three year deal worth the following:

2016-2017 season: €2.000.000
2017-2018 season: €2.000.000
2018-2019 season: €2.000.000


The Istanbul giants signed Cavanda from Trabzonspor today for a €1.8 million transfer fee on a three-year deal worth €875.000 per season.

The Lions are currently in talks with Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva and are expected to receive a decision from the Brazilian midfielder over the next 24 hours.

Galatasaray will seek an alternative if Lucas does not sign for the club and have Manchester United midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger listed as potential alternative.

The Istanbul giants also recently strengthened their coaching staff bringing in former Manchester United goalkeeping expert Frans Hoek to replace Claudio Taffarel.

Jurgen Klopp may reluctantly have to sell Liverpool ace in 24 hours
