Turkish Cup champions Galatasaray beat league champions Besiktas on penalty shoot outs in the Super Cup.

The Lions took the lead late in the second half when Hakan Balta gave them the lead with a well timed header.

Besiktas equalised soon after when Quaresma’s header hit Galatasaray defender Chedjou for an own goal.

Portuguese winger Bruma started for Galatasaray and put on another impressive display after putting himself back on the map over the pre-season period.

ESPN FC report that both United and PSV Eindhoven are in the race for Bruma and the Portuguese winger did recently reveal that Jose Mourinho himself was impressed with his recent performances.

The 21-year-old scored his sixth goal in five friendly games against United despite Galatasaray losing the pre-season clash in Sweden 5-2.

The Portugal international told reporters in the mixed zone after the game that Mourinho had a brief meeting with him.

“He congratulated me for the performance and said he was impressed with me,” Bruma said. “He promised to closely monitor my work and said I could play for the national team soon.

“Of course it was amazing to hear this from Mourinho and he said he will keep an eye on how I do this season.”

A source close to the player told Turkish-football.com that Galatasaray are aware of interest from United and PSV but that they want to keep hold of Bruma over the summer. The Lions value Bruma as being worth €25 million but do not believe their asking price will be met until next summer.
