Galatsaray agree terms with former Fenerbahce Brazilian midfielder de Souza

The Lions have struck a deal with Brazilian midfielder Josef de Souza.

Despite leaving the Turkish Super Lig last season, Brazilian midfielder Josef de Souza is gearing up for his return to Turkey. The former Fenerbahce player has accepted an offer from his former club’s heated rivals, Galatasaray.

The 30-year-old was sold by Fenerbahce last season to Saudi Arabia’s Al Ahli but the player has opted to return to Turkish football for the upcoming season.

After successful negotiations, Galatasaray and de Souza have shook hands on a deal that will see the Brazilian midfielder earn €2.6 million annually.

The Turkish football giants are now in talks with the player’s club, Al Ahli, in order to work out a loan deal before the new season begins.

de Souza made 15 appearances for the Arab club since joining them last season, managing to score 1 goal.

During his time with Fenerbahce, he scored 16 goals and made 6 assists in 136 official games.
