Man Utd target joins Fenerbahce on €7m move

Fenerbahçe have completed the €7 million transfer of Bursaspor midfielder Ozan Tufan.

The Yellow Canaries released a statement on the stock exchange confirming that Tufan has signed a five-year deal and that Bursaspor will receive €7 million for the move.

The statement read: “An agreement has been reached with Ozan Tufan and Bursaspor. Tufan has signed a five-year contract and Bursaspor will make €7 million in transfer fees.”

Manchester United were also closely linked with the young midfielder as were several other European clubs according to Ozan’s father.

“Other big European teams have sent scouts to watch Ozan play…AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, City and United,” Mehmet Tufan told Spanish newspaper AS.

The Metro recently reported that Liverpool had also been keeping close tabs on the 20-year-old midfielder.

Tufan has become the ninth player to join the Yellow Canaries this season and will join the likes of former United stars Robin van Persie and Luis Nani. Former Bursaspor players Sener Ozbayrakli and Fernandao also signed for the Yellow Canaries over the transfer window.

The 20-year-old midfielder was one of the players of the season over the 2014-15 league campaign fro the Green Crocodiles last season.

Fenerbahçe kick-off the 2015-15 league campaign against Eskişehirspor on the weekend.
