Mariano, who started 29 La Liga games for Sevilla last season, will earn €2.3m per season during his time in the Super Lig for the Red and Yellow outfit.
Mariano after completing the transfer said:
“I didn’t give a second thought when Galatasaray came calling .” “This is a well-known club in Europe. I spoke to [former Gala goalkeeper] Claudio Taffarel about the club and Istanbul.”
Galatasaray have also brought in Mariano’s compatriot Maicon from Porto and the likes of Younes Belhanda from Dinamo Kiev and Bafetimbi Gomis from Swansea City have also joined the Turkish giants.
