Man Utd linked Turkish international rejects Besiktas transfer bid

Bursaspor midfielder Ozan Tufan has turned down an offer from Beşiktaş according to the club football director Necmettin Kocaman.

Kocaman told to Lig Tv: “The offer was rejected and we informed Beşiktaş their offer was not accepted.”

The Turkish international midfeilder has also been linked with Manchester United over the past season. The Red Devils have been keeping tabs on his Tufan according to his father.

“Other big European teams have sent scouts to watch Ozan play…AC Milan, Juventus, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs, City and United,” Mehmet Tufan told Spanish newspaper AS.

The 20-year-old midfielder has also been closely linked with a move to Atletico Madrid as well as fellow La Liga outfit Valencia.

Bursaspor have developed a reputation for producing quality talent over recent years.

Fellow Bursaspor teammate Enes Ünal headed to Manchester over the summer. The 18-year-old striker joined Manchester City on a £2 million move and was taken on the Australia tour with the senior team. Also 19-year-old striker Batuhan Altuntaş recently joined HSV Hamburg last month.

The Green Crocodiles reached the Turkish Cup final last season and are currently managed by Ertuğrul Sağlam.
