Bruma wants Man United move, Galatasaray director confirms

Galatasaray winger Bruma is keen on a summer transfer to Manchester United, the Turkish side’s sporting director told Turkish-Football.com

What’s the word?

Talented 22-year-old Portuguese U21 international Bruma seems keen to join up with compatriot Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, as he seeks a future transfer to Manchester United to bolster his career trajectory.

Bruma has impressed in the Super Lig this season by netting seven goals and securing five assists in 18 appearances, which has attracted interest from across Europe- and it’s clear the youngster’s future lies away from Turkish football.

The pacy winger is reportedly desperate to join Manchester United or another top-side in the future, like Real Madrid or Barcelona, and he’ll jump at the chance if he got that opportunity.

What was said?

Speaking to Turkish-Football.comGalatasaray’s sporting director Levent Nazifoglu said:

“He has said he wants to play for Barcelona and Real Madrid. Bruma aims to play for Manchester United but if he wants to, he must change certain things,”

What needs to change?

A diamond in the rough, Bruma needs to improve in certain areas- with Nazifoglu’s comments coming after new Galatasaray boss Igor Tudor dropped the winger for his first game in charge, following a dispute with Bruma in the pair’s first training session together.

Jose Mourinho is unlikely to put up with that sort of behaviour so the player needs to smoothen down the rough edges of his game, especially if he’s to secure a move to Old Trafford and play ahead of the likes of Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.
