Sergio Oliveira edging towards Galatasaray after Roma departure

Sergio Oliveira is now evaluating options in the market after it was confirmed earlier this summer that Roma would not sign him on a permanent deal.

Citing reports from Portugal,  Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Sergio Oliveira is nearing a move to Galatasaray. It is understood that both Sergio Oliveira and the Turkish club recently held talks over a potential summer transfer.

Galatasaray are undergoing a major overhaul after finishing 13th in the points table last season. Oliveira is thus seen as a significant coup for the club.

The player joined Roma on a six-month loan with an option to buy last January. But having failed to impress Jose Mourinho with his inconsistent performances, Roma decided against spending €13 million on a permanent move for the midfielder.

Consequently, he returned to Porto after leading the Giallorossi to their first European accolade in the form of the UEFA Europa Conference League. 

The 30-year-old is not interested in staying at Porto for another season as the entourage of the player is reportedly close to reaching an agreement with Galatasaray.
