Manchester United, Chelsea and Man City linked with Bursaspor’s Ozan Tufan
The English newspaper The Express has stated that Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are monitoring the progress of Bursaspor’s Turkish international Ozan Tufan.
The Turkish international’s father also confirmed last week that Europe’s elite had sent scouts to scout his son play.
“Atlético and also Valencia have been to see him play but they are not alone. 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.
Tufan has played in a number of positions for Bursaspor this season ranging from right back, to central midfield.
Bursaspor have valued their young star at €10 million and recently rejected bids from Fenerbahce and Trabzonspor who tabled offers in the region of €5 million.
The 19-year-old midfielder has established himself as a first team regular for Bursaspor and has already scored for the senior Turkish national team.
Bursaspor manager Şenol Güneş believes that Tufan has what it takes to play in England or Spain.
“In my opinion if Ozan is to leave he needs to join Chelsea, Barcelona or Real Madrid, that has to be his aim, if he really is one of our brightest prospects that should be his goal and I do believe he has what it takes to reach those levels. I want him to set his sights high,” Güneş was quoted as saying by Radyospor.
Tufan midfielder has two goals and two assists in 21 appearances for Bursaspor this season.
