Dortmund youth product likened to Man Utd target Paul Pogba

Besiktas president Fikret Orman has likened the signing of Oguzhan Aydogan from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester United letting Paul Pogba leave for Juventus.

Orman was asked why Dortmund allowed 19-year-old youth product Aydogan leave at the signing ceremony of Adriano.

The Besiktas president used the Pogba – United transfer saga as an example that even the biggest clubs can make mistakes in the transfer market.

“Manchester United had to pay €120 million to get Pogba back, he was a United player but they let him go and we are all witness to how much they have to pay to get him back,” Orman was quoted as saying by Turkish-football.com.

“What we have done is like what happened to Manchester United.”

Pogba refused to sign a contract extension in 2012 and left the Red Devils to join Juventus.

The powerful midfielder has since gone on to win four Serie A titles with Juventus as well as reach the Champions League final last season.

Pogba is now set to return to United for a world record transfer fee expected to fetch €120 million.

Aydogan joined Besiktas on a £170k move from Dortmund and has represented Germany at youth international level.

The 19-year-old is however, eligible to play for Turkey at senior intentional level due to being an ethnic Turk. Aydogan will be able to play under a domestic status in Turkey this season.
