Manchester City have confirmed that Elano has joined Turkish side Galatasary.

The Brazilian midfielder decided to move on after falling out of favour with manager Mark Hughes last season.

Following his arrival two seasons ago when Sven-Goran Eriksson was in charge, Elano quickly became a fans' favourite with a string of excellent displays.

However his form tailed off in the second half of his debut campaign and he struggled for consistency under Hughes.

Elano, 28, scored 18 goals in 80 appearances for City and remains a regular member of the Brazil squad.
