Man City offered Man United wonder kid target deal worth up to €13m but Italian giants make rival bid
Basaksehir rising star Cengiz Under continues to attract interest from across Europe after an impressive breakthrough season.

Untied rivals Manchester City ended up making the first official bid for Under last Thursday.
A source close to the player revealed that City’s bid was actually higher than initially reported.

The first bid made was €8 million but after four-hours or talks City increased their fee to €9 million including a further €4 million of potential bonuses.
The final offer was worth up to €13 million but a deal was not struck.
Basaksehir want the fee up front as 30 percent of any deal will go back to Altinordu.
The Istanbul minnows signed Under on a €700,000 move from Altinordu last season.
Under went onto score nine goals, provide seven assists and play a key role in his side finishing the season as runners-up as well as reaching the Turkish Cup final.
City are still in talks with Under but are facing pressure from Roma.
The Italian giants made a €12 million offer upfront which could increase with bonuses.
Basaksehir have yet to make a final decision and while no offer has been confirmed the Roma offer currently looks more attractive.
City are expected to hold a second round of negotiations over the next few days.
Basaksehir are under no pressure to sell as Under has another four-years left on his contract.
The club are also keen on loaning Under back for another season if he does end up being sold.
