Man Utd send scouts to watch Bayer Leverkusen star

Chelsea transfer news

Manchester Untied have sent scouts to monitor Bayer Beverkusen’s attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu.

The Sun newspaper reported earlier this month that the Red Devil’s are closely monitoring the Turkish international.

United were also linked with the 22-year-old at the beginning of the season.

Turkey are set to take on England on 22 May in the third of their pre-Euro 2016 warm up games and Calhanoglu is expected to start.

The Crescent-Stars are on a 13 match unbeaten run following recent victories against Sweden and Austria but their stiffest test will come against the Three Lions.

Turkey have never actually scored against England having played the Three Lions 10 times winning eight and drawing on two occasions.

Calhanoglu has a total of 11 goals and eights assists in 43 appearances for Bayer Leverkusen in all competitions this season.

Leverkusen take on Hertha Berlin in their next Bundesliga clash while Manchester United take on league leaders Leicester City.
