Valencia pull out of race for Man Utd target Ozan Tufan

Valencia have pulled out of the running to sign Bursaspor midfielder Ozan Tufan according to AMK.

The La Liga giants are reported to have offered €6 million but Bursaspor refused and asked for an increased fee of €8 million.

Valencia were unable to match the Green Crocodiles valuation and pulled out of the race to sign the 20-year-old midfielder.

Manchester United have also been closely linked with the young midfielder as have several other European clubs 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.

Liverpool have also been monitoring the highly rated midfielder with the Metro reporting that the Reds sent scouts to watch Tufan towards the end of 2014-15 league campaign.

The Green Crocodiles have developed a reputation for producing quality talent recently after several young talents joined English and Germany clubs. Eighteen-year-old striker Enes Ünal joined Manchester City on a £2 million move and was taken on the Australia tour with the senior team. Additionally 19-year-old striker Batuhan Altuntaş recently joined HSV Hamburg.
