Armindo Tué Na Bangna, better known as Bruma, joined Galatasaray back in September 2013 for a transfer fee of €10 million. The young Portuguese endured a difficult start to his career with the Turkish giants, and was even loaned out to La Liga outfit Real Sociedad last season.
However, it looks like the winger has returned from his loan spell in Spain as a changed man, with drastic improvements. The 21-year-old has been the star man for Galatasaray during the ongoing pre-season, and has scored 6 goals in the last 5 games for the club.
His recent performances have attracted interest from various clubs across Europe, including the likes of Monaco, PSV, and Sevilla. But the Portugal international has publicly committed his future to Gala, despite being hugely flattered by the interest.
Speaking to Goal, Bruma stated: “To be considered for these teams is flattering. That means you are doing your job well and those teams have been watching you. I thank all those clubs who are interested in me, but I have a contract with Galatasaray. I will continue at Galatasaray.
“I have left these issues to the board members,” he added. “I feel better that way. I’m just playing football and don’t worry about the rest.”
But now, another party seems to have shown interest in the promising youngster, and this one’s “not just a big club, but a super-big club,” to quote a certain someone.
Following the friendly between Galatasaray and Manchester United in Sweden on Saturday – in which Bruma managed to score a fabulous goal – the youngster revealed that the new United boss Jose Mourinho approached him, and not only heaped praises on him, but revealed that the club will be keeping an eye out for his performances this season.
Bruma was quoted as saying: “Mourinho told me he was impressed with my performance and that if I continue I will get back into the Portugal national team. Of course it was amazing to hear this from Mourinho, and he said he will keep an eye on how I do this season.”
