Inter have received an offer from Galatasaray to take Joao Mario on loan with an option to buy, according to Tuttosport.
The Nerazzurri have prioritised finding a buyer for the Portuguese midfielder while Mario is seeking a club where he can enjoy regular game time.
The 26-year-old is open to moving to Turkey but only if Gala agree to his wage demands, which are thought to be €3 million after tax per season.
However, the prospect of playing in the Champions League and being coached by Fatih Terim, who admires his qualities as a player, is persuading Mario it could be the right club for him.
Monaco have been heavily linked with a move for Mario this month but head coach Leonardo Jardim is concentrated on reinforcing other positions.
Villarreal and Celta Vigo have shown an interest from La Liga, but both were put off by the player’s salary.
Porto and Mario’s former club Sporting Lisbon are keen on bringing the midfielder back to Portugal, but they too do not have the economic resources to finance a deal.
Mario scored one goal in 20 league appearances for Inter last season and is surplus to requirements under new boss Antonio Conte.
