Orel Mangala’s situation at Nottingham Forest suddenly became a big topic in the rumour mill.
The first reports came early on Friday, when it was claimed that Galatasaray made an approach from the player. Then it was said that the 25-year-old was offered to the likes of Juventus and Napoli.
Well, it’s really the Italian media who’s picking up this story, and TuttoMercatoWeb now has a fresh piece on the Nottingham Forest midfielder.
It’s claimed that as Mangala played very little since the arrival of Nuno Espírito Santo, he’s set to have a meeting with the coach to understand the plans for his future.
TMW says the player ‘will confront’ the manager about his little playing time, and it’s possible that the boss and Nottingham Forest’s board give the green light for a January move.
That’s why he’s seen as a market opportunity for the couple of Italian clubs who are interested in him, even though the operation is said to only be possible with a loan with an option to buy.
It’s said no negotiations started yet, as that all depends on the upcoming meeting between the Nottingham Forest player and those above him.
