The 49-year-old Italian took charge of the Turkish club in September last year on a three-year contract after leaving City at the end of the 2012/13 season.

He guided Galatasaray into second place in the Super Lig behind Fenerbahce and also won the Turkish Cup, but they exited the Champions League at the last-16 stage after losing to Chelsea.

Mancini has been linked with a return to his former club Lazio in Italy and his odds to become the next manager of Southampton have also shortened following his departure from the Istanbulmclub.
