Manchester United in bid for Arda Turan

share on:

Manchester United have opened talks with Atletico Madrid over attacker Arda Turan – but face competition from Monaco to sign the player. Turan, who helped Atletico to the La Liga title last season, is reported to have been scouted intensively by United chiefs in the last 18 months. And now reports in France say United have now opened official talks with Atletico over a deal to bring him to Old Trafford.

Turan is said to be keen to speak to the Red Devils about a switch, but Atletico would prefer to sell to cash laden Monaco who are also in negotiations.
Turan is expected to cost about £16million and United hope to offset that cost by selling fringe winger Nani to Arsenal – but could also include him in a package if Atletico want him.
Barcelona and Real Madrid were linked with Turan last summer but the 27-year-old has been holding out for a switch to England
