Manchester United are planning for their summer transfer window and one player seems to be linked with a move to the Red Devils. Portuguese winger Bruma, who has had a stellar season with the Turkish side Galatasaray, could be moving closer to leaving the club.
The 22-year-old has scored seven goals and has provided five assists for the Turkish giants in the Super Lig this season and there are reports claiming that negotiations over a new contract with the winger have come to a stop after a training ground bust-up.
Igor Tudor, the former Juventus star and current manager of Galatasaray was involved in the bust up and Bruma certainly would not be kept at the side anymore.
It isn’t a surprise that a rising Portuguese star is being linked with a move to Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils, however, reports also claim that Tottenham Hotspur are also looking to sign the winger up.
Bruma also caught the attention of the former Chelsea, Real Madrid and Inter Milan manager when the sides played a pre-season game and had this to say about the contact between the two.
“He [Jose Mourinho] congratulated me for the performance and said he was impressed with me,” Bruma was quoted as saying by Turkish-football.com.
The 22-year-old can play across the front line and is comfortable on either side of the pitch, though he prefers to play on the left side of the attack. Bruma also has an eye for goal and can link up with the attack really well.
Bruma had joined Galatasaray from Sporting Lisbon and United fans would have high expectations of the 22-year-old to turn out to be another Cristiano Ronaldo. The quote from Bruma does prove that there is interest from United and the fact that there was a bit of a breakdown in communication means he could leave on the cheap.
Surprisingly, the winger hasn’t always scored goals a plenty in his earlier clubs with three being his highest return which was with Real Sociedad on loan. United do need to add quality out wide as this season has seen a bit of a dip from the likes of Anthony Martial and Jesse Lingard and Mourinho would have to act fast if he is to sign the Galatasaray winger up.
