Mancini has signed a three-year deal with the Turkish giants worth a reported €3.5m for this season plus an additional €4.5m for each of the next two seasons. The former Man City boss will reportedly earn a €300,000 bonus if the club win the Turkish title and reach the UEFA Champions League quarter-finals.
Defending Turkish champions Galatasaray spent big 18 months ago on the likes of Didier Drogba, Wesley Sneijder, Felipe Melo and Hamit Altintop and that investment paid off with a championship.
But it is a different story this year as Gala are already eight points behind leaders and bitter rivals Fenerbahce after winning just one of their first five league games. They were also thrashed 6-1 at home by Real Madrid in their opening UEFA Champions League group match.
