PSV pull out of race to sign €25m Man Utd target eyed by Jose Mourinho


PSV have pulled out of the race to sign Galatasaray star Bruma according to Futbol Arena.

Per the source, PSV had been actively pursuing Bruma over the transfer window but Galatasaray rejected the Dutch giants €7.5 million bid.

PSV sporting director Marcel Brands revealed that the club is no longer in the race to sign the 21-year-old.

Galatasaray are determined to keep hold of the Portugal international winger a source close to the club told and they value the young winger as being worth €25 million.

Manchester United are also interested in Bruma and Jose Mourinho has ordered his scouts to keep tabs on the youngster since the friendly they played against Galatasaray during the pre-season – which ended in a 5-2 victory to the Red Devils.

Bruma scored his sixth goal in five friendly games against United despite Galatasaray losing the pre-season clash in Sweden 5-2.

The Portugal international told reporters in the mixed zone after the game that Mourinho had a brief meeting with him.

“He congratulated me for the performance and said he was impressed with me,” Bruma said. “He promised to closely monitor my work and said I could play for the national team soon.

“Of course it was amazing to hear this from Mourinho and he said he will keep an eye on how I do this season.”

Bruma is expected to stay at Galatasaray this season and will feature as a key player for head coach Jan Olde Rierkerink.
