Enes Unal chose Man City over Chelsea because of better opportunities for youngsters

“City are investing a lot in young players and have plans to use them in the future.”

The Blues have two players currently on loan in Turkey; 21-year-old Kenneth Omeruo at Kasımpaşa and Germany international Marko Marin at Trabzonspor.

Ünal revealed that Chelsea also made him an offer over the summer but that he opted for City.

“One of the other teams that wanted me was Chelsea but I decided to join Manchester City because they had shown more interest and were really keen in bringing me in,” he added.

Ünal become the youngest player to ever have scored in the Süper Lig when he netted against Turkish giants Galatasaray on 1 August 2013.

The Turkish international went onto score seven times for Bursaspor despite being given limited playing time.
