2nd Winter Signing? Manchester United Could Sign Former Chelsea Star

Manchester United boss, Louis van Gaal has opted to add to his team’s attack and is interested in signing Turkey player, Gokhan Tore from Beskitas, reports suggests.

According to reports in Turkey, United are keen to table a bid for the 22-year old who has featured in for Hamburg and Rubin Kazan in previous seasons.

Reports in Turkey also suggests that the Premier League outfit are preparing an offer worth £5 million for the winger.

Tore is not alien to the Premier League. He signed for Chelsea as a trainee but left after a two year spell for failing to make a mark with the Blues three seasons ago.

The former Chelsea man has gone on to impress at Beskitas ever since and United boss, van Gaal has added the youngster to his list of transfer options.

While he plays as an attacking midfielder and a winger, van Gaal is thought to convert the player to a wing back once he signs for the Red Devils.

Louis van Gaal is known to subtly convert players often times, with Ashley young adding to the lists to players the Dutch has converted in recent years.

A scout has been sent to Turkey by the Dutch to evaluate the 22-year-old abilities and see how the youngster fits into the plan of the manager at the Old Trafford. He may well be Manchester United’s second signing of the winter transfer window after Victor Valdes if reports are anything to go by.

Tore, who almost blew his career after a spat with national team mates, Hakan Calhanoglu and Omer Toprak, after allegedly breaking into their room to threaten them about a clash involving a woman.

The attacking midfielder’s career was almost brought to an end after the incident and was dropped by the national team but was called back a year after following an impressive performance.

The youngster could continue rehab under the watchful eyes of Manchester United’s manager if the deal pulls through.

Other clubs are reported to be monitoring the player as well but van Gaal is keen on stealing the march on other potential suitors of the 22-year-old winger by submitting a bid to Beskitas this month.
