Ex-Man Utd star Juan Mata and Mauro Icardi watch new side Galatasaray from box in thrilling 3-2 win over Kasimpasa | The Sun

JUAN MATA and Mauro Icardi both took in the sights of Istanbul on Sunday.

And they capped it off by watching new club Galatasaray win a five-goal thriller against Kasimpasa.


The duo are the latest big names to sign for the Turkish giants, who went on a huge spending spree this summer.

The likes of Dries Mertens, Lucas Torreira and Sergio Oliveira have all made the move to the capital.

All three started in Sunday’s exceptional 3-2 win away at Kasimpasa.

And the impressive performance appeared to delight Mata and Icardi, with both men watching from a box.

Champions Trabzonspor have reinforced too, signing several high-profile names including Valencia striker Maxi Gomez and Real Betis defender Marc Bartra.
