Mancini could be trying to swoop more than one signing over at Galatasaray, as Inter is also moving in for Felip Melo. Inter Milan is working to secure the deal with the turkish club, and in the list of the possible transfer targets designated by the club could also contain the name of Alex Telles, who is also reported to be a Chelsea FC target.
There’s rumours of Mancini already having personally called the Brasilian under 23, to try and convince him to join the Neroazzuri. The Italian manager is said to have been impressed by the utility of the player himself that is capabale of playing in a back four, or as a wide midfielder in a 3-5-2.
The asking price from the turkish club seems to be quite high, and it’s most likely that the transfer would only take off if a player exchange were to take place.
