Man City transfer news Galatasaray Jason Denayer

Galatasaray beat Basaksehir 2-0 in the Istanbul derby to move into first place in the Super Lig.

Mariano opened the scoring with a long-range screamer while Sinan Gumus doubled the home sides lead.

The win took Galatasaray above Basaksehir and ahead of Besiktas who were leaders into pole position by just a single point.

Manchester City defender Jason Denayer started his first game since making a full recovery from a hamstring injury that ruled him out for two months.

Denayer put on an impressive showing at the back and shared a photograph celebrating Gumus’ goal on his Instagram account after the game.

Could the Belgium international follow in his parent clubs footsteps and help guide Galatasaray to the league title?
