£30m Man Utd target starts for Turkey in decisive Euro 2016 clash


Turkey take on Iceland in their final Euro 2016 Group A game needing a point to guarantee a place in the play-off round.

Fatih Terim’s side have no fresh injury concerns or suspensions going into the Iceland clash and both Hakan Çalhanoğlu and Arda Turan are both expected to start.

Manchester United have been closely linked with the 21-year-old play-maker but Barcelona are also reported to be interested.

United will have to part ways with £30 million to prize Çalhanoğlu away from Bayer according to Tutto Mercato Web (via the Mirror‘s Aaron Flanagan).

Iceland are currently first in Group A and have already booked a place in the tournament.

Terim has decided to play a three-man midfield with Ozan Tufan, Oğuzhan Özyakup and Selçuk İnan in midfield.

Volkan Şen and Barcelona star Arda Turan will star on the flanks with Çalhanoğlu starting as a false nine.
