Man United target Bruma breaks career record with 8th goal in Turkish league for Galatasaray
Galatasaray star Bruma scored a career best eight goals in a single season when he found the back of the net in the 3-2 victory over Antalyaspor at the Antalya Arena on Monday 6 March.
Bruma scored three goals on loan at Real Sociedad last season, three times for Galatasaray over the 2014-15 campaign and netted seven for Sporting Lisbon over the 2012-13 season – for the A and B side combined.

A source close to the player revealed to Turkish-Football that Manchester United have been keeping close tabs on Bruma and that he was monitored against Antalyaspor.
Tottenham have also been scouting Bruma and were closely linked with the Portugal star over the winter transfer window.
The Portugal international star also extended his impressive away record to six goals and three assists this season.
Bruma’s explosive pace and quick thinking during counter-attacking moves could go some way to explain his impressive away record.
The 22-year-old is currently the highest rated player – statistically – in the league according to Whoscored. The Portuguese star completes more dribbles on average than any other player in the league.
In fact his overall dribbling stats are even higher than the likes of Messi and Neymar.
Bruma has directly contributed to 16 Galatasaray goals – eight goals and eight assists – which is more than any other player in the squad.
The young winger’s current contract runs until 2018 and he has yet to reach an agreement over an extension.
