Galatasaray vice-president Timur: I saw contract Juventus offered Mertens

Galatasaray vice-president Erden Timur has revealed Dries Mertens chose them over Juventus.

The former Napoli striker signed for Galatasaray this week.

Timur said, “Juventus offered him a contract worth €5m, I saw it with my own eyes.

“He didn't want to end his career with the Bianconeri due to the rivalry with Napoli, so he refused their offer and decided to accept our proposal."

Mertens moves to Gala as a free agent after nine years in Naples.
