Galatasaray defender Ozan Kabak continues to attract interest from across Europe after another impressive display in another Istanbul derby.

Sources close to Galatasaray revealed to Turkish-Football that Manchester United scouted the 18-year-old in the derby clash against Besiktas.

United have been keeping close tabs on Kabak as have Roma and Inter this season.

Kabak has established himself as a first-team star for the Lions despite his young age.

The young centre-back was one of the few Galatasaray players that put on a noteworthy display in the 1-0 defeat against Besiktas at the Vodafone Park.

Kabak won three aerial duels, made four interceptions, five clearances and had a header hit the post, narrowly missing out on putting his side ahead early on.

The young defender was initially drafted in during an injury crisis in the Galatasaray defence which saw Maicon and Serdar Aziz battle with injury problems.

Galatasaray head coach Fatih Terim has been left so impressed with the former academy player that he is expected to keep the young defender on as his first-choice centre-back pairing with Aziz for the rest of the season.

Kabak has started 10 league games and three Champions League matches this term.

The young defender has just over a year remaining on his current contract.
