Galatasaray star Bruma has revealed that he is happy at the club but hinted that a future move could be on the cards when asked about interest from Manchester United on Lig Tv.

“I am happy at Galatasaray and things are going well, of course you can never tell what the future holds but I do not want to get into that right now,” Bruma said.

“I am not going anywhere right now, a transfer is not currently on the cards but in the future things could happen.”

The 21-year-old caught the eye of Jose Mourinho when Galatasaray faced United in a pre-season friendly.

United ended up winning the game 5-2 but Bruma scored and put on an impressive display.

Following the game Mourinho requested a meeting with the Portuguese winger.

“He congratulated me for the performance and said he was impressed with me,” Bruma was quoted as saying by Turkish-football.com“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 has been in outstanding form this season and is set to start for Galatasaray in the Istanbul derby against Besiktas on Saturday.

United will be keeping tabs on Bruma and a source close to Turkish-football.com revealed that Arsenal, Tottenham, Chelsea and West Ham will also be monitoring his display.

Bruma is a highly rated technical player, in fact no other player has managed to complete as many successful dribbles as he has this season.
