Whilst original indications were that the 56-year-old would take a short break from the game following his resignation from the Italy job after their World Cup exit, the Turkish giants have released a short statement confirming they have opened talks with Prandelli.

The Turkish side's sporting director is Tomas Ujfalusi who is a former Fiorentina player under Prandelli.

Speculation has it that Galatasaray would be willing to pay Prandelli €5m-a-season.

Galatasaray are in the market for a new Coach after splitting with Roberto Mancini this summer, whilst Mancini has been linked with replacing Prandelli in the national team hotseat.

Previously, former Manchester United boss David Moyes flew to Istanbul and held talks with the Turks but it was later revealed to just be an 'exchange of ideas.'
