Table of Contents
Manchester City have confirmed that Elano has joined Turkish side Galatasaray for a fee believed to be close to £8 million.

The Brazilian midfielder decided to move on after falling out of favour with manager Mark Hughes last season, though he still scored eight goals in 42 appearances for City.

Italian rivals AC Milan and Inter Milan were believed to be interested in signing him, but Galatasaray have moved quickly to land the 27-year-old.

"Brazilian national football team player Elano Blumer (27) has signed a four-year contract with Galatasaray after playing at Manchester City for two years," read a statement on the Turkish club site.

City also confirmed the deal on their website, stating: "We can confirm that Elano has completed his transfer to Turkish side Galatasaray.

"Everyone at Manchester City would like to thank Elano for his services and wish him the very best of luck for the future with both his new club and with Brazil."
