Galatasaray president Mustafa Cengiz has revealed that the club are keen on tying up a permanent agreement with Inter Milan to sign Japanese defender Yuto Nagatomo. The 31-year-old joined the Turkish giants on a short-term loan in January and he has since made 14 appearances for the club across all competitions.
Speaking to reporters, Cengiz confirmed that Gala have the ideal of prolonging Nagatomo’s stay but they have yet to make a formal approach to the Nerazzurri, he said: “He is very happy here. He is a really great person. When he came to us, he did not give any consideration to the idea of returning to Italy. With regard to signing him permanently, we have not yet met with Inter to discuss this. We are waiting for each other’s next move. The plan is to come to a mutually satisfactory agreement.”
