Chelsea transfers: Galatasaray will sell Bruma if ‘price is right’
Chelsea transfers: Galatasaray won't be sending Bruma out on loan but are open to selling the winger if "price is right"
Chelsea have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Bruma after Galatasaray announced that they could sell the winger if the “price is right”.
The 19-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to the Blues in recent weeks as Jose Mourinho looks to add further youth to his blossoming squad.
Bruma scored one goal and made six assists in 15 appearances in all competitions last season after moving to the Turkish club from Sporting Lisbon in 2012.
The Gala winger missed the second half of the season after suffering a knee injury, but it doesn’t appear to have dampened Mourinho’s interest in the youngster.
And Galatasaray president Unal Aysal revealed that the Turkish side could cash in on the forward, dubbed the next Cristiano Ronaldo, in the summer transfer window.
“We are not interested in loaning Bruma; we may consider a permanent transfer if the price is right.”
The Portugal Under-21 international is yet to be handed a full cap by international manager, Paulo Bento.
