Galatasaray reps meet with Man Utd captain Vidic

Galatasaray are offering Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic a massive final career payday to move to Turkey.

The Daily Mail says the cash-rich Turkish giants will make an early move to sign the Serbian before the end of the week as they look to add to their growing contingent of global stars.

Talks were held at the Manchester Piccadilly Hilton Hotel last week and London-based deal-fixer Muzzi Ozcan is due to fly to Istanbul at the end of the week to discuss the deal with Galatasaray chiefs ahead of a formal offer to join next season.

The financial details of Galatasaray's offer to Vidic will become clearer after this week's discussions, but it is understood the offer will be in the region of £3million, including up to £415,000 worth of bonuses, per season after tax.

At Gala, Wesley Sneijder earns a salary of £5.4million after tax, while Didier Drogba takes home £3.3million a year.
