NICOLO ZANIOLO will wear the No17 shirt for Galatasaray in memory of a 17-year-old fan who died in the Turkish earthquake after pushing for him to make the move.
Zaniolo, 23, joined the Turkish giants on a four-year deal earlier this week after falling out of favour at Roma.
Galatasaray will pay £14.6million up front with £11.5m in add-ons.
Zaniolo will pick up just over £3m-a-season and has a £30m release clause should he impress.
The Italy star will wear the No17 for Galatasaray – but in memory of a fan who sadly died in the earthquake.
Muhammed Emin Ozkan passed away after pushing hard on social media for Zaniolo to be signed by Galatasaray.
The disaster in Turkey and Syria has so far taken over 15,000 lives and potentially left millions without homes.
Zaniolo said: “I am very sorry for Mohammed and the Turkish people.”
Football fans have been touched by Zaniolo’s gesture.
One said: “Thoughtfulness and character.”
Another tweeted: “Welcome Zaniolo, you’ve been a morale booster for those who support a little at this bad time.
“Good luck to all of us. We will never forget you Mohammed.”
On Monday, we launched the Sun Earthquake Appeal to help the response to the destruction and loss of life in Turkey and Syria.
All money raised will be donated to the British Red Cross for a major on-the-ground mobilisation.
Red Crescent staff are already distributing essentials such as food, water, blankets and temporary shelters to support survivors who spent the night outside in freezing temperatures.
Support is also being provided for traumatised people.
British Red Cross Chief Executive Mike Adamson said: “The scale of destruction caused by these earthquakes has been devastating.
“The priority right now is rescuing people from the rubble.
“Your donations will help search-and-rescue missions on the ground — and provide vital aid to those who need it most.
“We thank Sun readers for your kind support.
“Anything you give makes a difference.”
