United make Turan approach

Last Updated: Thu, 06 Mar 2014 09:26

Arda Turan's agent has revealed an English club, believed to be Manchester United, have made an offer for the Atletico Madrid forward.

Turan has enjoyed another good season at Atletico, helping the Rojiblancos stay on the coat tails of their more illustrious rivals Barcelona and Real Madrid in La Liga.

While Turan is reportedly content at the Vicente Calderon, United are looking to bring him to Old Trafford as part of their restructuring plans this summer.

The Turkey international is one of a number of players on manager David Moyes' lengthy transfer wishlist, the Scot having been to watch the 27-year-old earlier this season.

The forward's agent has now revealed he has been contacted by a Premier League club with regards to a deal for his client and hasn't totally ruled out a move for Turan.

"Arda is playing at a big club with big goals and wants to be a part of their success," said agent Ahmet Bulut.

"We have received an offer from an English club. We will see.

"There are two sides to every transfer, the player and the club, it's up to both to decide."

United are believed to be ready to offer £15million for Turan but Atletico are looking for closer to £20million before they consider selling.
