Galatasaray's new president, Ünal Aysal, who was elected over the weekend, offered Terim the job to coach the team next season. Aysal and his aides met with Terim on Monday.
Terim had earlier said he would not coach a team in Turkey due to personal problems. “Our meeting was positive. However, nothing has been concluded,” a Galatasaray executive said.
Terim is one of the most successful coaches in the history of Galatasaray. His team won four consecutive league titles from 1996 to 2000 and the UEFA Cup in 2000. He also coached Italy's Fiorentina and AC Milan in Seria A. In 2002, he returned to Galatasaray but had a disappointing performance, leading to his resignation in 2004. Terim later coached the Turkish national football team from 2005 to 2009.
