Ranocchia came close to joining Gala before Monday's Turkish transfer deadline.
â€śThey wanted to make us pay too much, so the transfer collapsed at the last minute,â€ť said Galatasaray spokesman Ergun Sukru.
â€śWe considered the costs to be unreasonable. He wanted â‚¬2.4m wages for just four months. It was laughable.
â€śWe had an agreement with the club to take him until the end of the season on loan, but couldnâ€™t agree terms with the player.â€ť
