Tottenham have seemed to have beaten Manchester United to sign Turkish breakthrough star Cengiz Under.
The 19-year-old has had a decent first season at Turkish Super Lig side Basaksehir where he scored nine goals and claimed eight assists. His performances earned him two international caps for Turkey.
Manchester United had reportedly sent scouts to Turkey to watch Under earlier in the season, but Spurs seemed to have agreed a deal with the Turkish side to bring Under to Spurs for a fee of about £8 million.
This would mean Basaksehir would be making a huge profit from when they bought the forward a year ago for less than £500,000.
Under looks like he could be another player who Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino can train into being one of Europe’s best. Pochettino could be the best manager for Under’s development so he can achieve his potential.
The forward has been compared to the likes of current Spurs superstar Dele Alli who has been one of the Premier League’s best players over the last two seasons.
The deal would also show Spurs building for the future even more with buying more young players with high potentials to become one of Europe’s best clubs and have Europe’s best players.
The deal would also fit Daniel Levy and Tottenham’s tight transfer and wage budget.
