Man United transfer news: Red Devils scout Trabzonspor wonderkid who has transformed Turkish giants season
Man United transfer news: Trabzonspor wonderkid Yusuf Yazici has been the talk of the town in the Turkish League this season.
The 20-year-old was the star of the show during Trabzonspor’s 2-0 win over Galatasaray on Saturday, scoring his seventh goal of the season against the Istanbul giants.
Yazici’s performances have also caught the attention of several big club across Europe.
A source close to Trabzonspor revealed to Turkish-Football that Man United were amongst a group of European scouts watching the youngster on Saturday.
Yazici has been in superb form in his break-out season with seven goals and five assists in just 14 games this season.
Trabzonspor are unbeaten in every game in which Yazici has started.
Yazici is one of the most highly rated youngsters in the Turkish League and has already secured a first-team role as a No.10 despite his young age.
Since manager Ersun Yanal promoted Yazici to the team, Trabzonspor have been quickly rising up the league table.
The Black Sea based club have moved up to fifth place and are in contention for European football – which seemed nearly impossible back in December.
