Sevilla full-back Mariano is reportedly on the verge of a €4.5m transfer to Turkish side Galatasaray.
Mundo Deportivo cites Turkish sources that suggest Mariano’s move will become official on Saturday.
Moreover, the Brazilian did not fly to Japan for preseason with his Nervionenses teammates.
Mariano has been a regular for Sevilla since joining from Bordeaux in 2015, but his starting place has come under threat due to the recent arrival of Sebastien Corchia.
Furthermore, the 31-year-old’s contract expires next summer and he will continue to occupy a non-EU spot.
