According to the Mirror, Atletico Madrid are confident of landing Galatasary’s, Semih Kaya, in a deal worth £8m despite the player’s heart being set on playing under Louis van Gaal.
It is believed that the 23-year-old is prepared to take on the daunting challenge at United and he will hope his presence will help strengthen their shaky defence.
And a move seems ideal for all parties involved, with the Red Devil’s clearly desperate for defensive reinforcements.
But annoyingly for United fans, although their club and Atletico have both been scouting the player, it seems that the Spanish giants have been on their toes and are looking to force the deal through.
As it is believed representatives of the Spanish club have flown to Istanbul with the intentions to agree a deal to sign him in the January transfer window.
But punters in the Tavern insist not all hope is lost as it is clear the player’s passion lies with Manchester United and this passion could be enough to turn down Atletico.
