Earlier this summer, Florian Grillitsch seemed set for a move to Fiorentina before his salary demands got in the way. It's happening yet again as the Austrian's transfer to Turkish side Galatasaray is breaking down due to disagreements over his wage bill. The move was nearly made official before Grillitsch demanded €2.5 million more.

Grillitsch has struggled in the past year through injuries which has significantly limited his playing time. It's difficult to see this transfer going through unless the 26-year-old is willing to bring down his demands and meet Galatasaray at a fair price. The Turkish club are reportedly willing to increase his agreed upon salary by €1 million to confirm the transfer.

The defensive midfielder has made 130 Bundesliga appearances in 5 seasons at Hoffenheim.
