Manchester United have been scouting 18-year-old Galatasaray defender Ozan Kabak this term.

Turkish-Football reported interest from the Red Devils in the young centre-back back in October.

Since then The Sun published a story this month that United are continuing to keep tabs.

Galatasaray value their young defender as being worth €20m but there are reports that he currently has a €7.5m release clause.

Additionally, Kabak’s contract only runs until 2020.

The Lions are currently in talks with the young defender over a new deal according to Fanatik.

The young defender went from earning 5,000 TL when he signed a professional contract with the club aged 17 to an 890,000 TL-a-year deal after breaking into the first-team.

The Turkey international could be set for his third deal if he agrees to the terms put forward by Galatasaray.

The new deal would see him sign a five-year deal with a release clause that could be set at €20m.
