Fenerbahce of Turkey have entered the race to sign Manchester United’s Nigerian-born midfielder, Tosin Kehinde, but will have to ward off pressure for his signature from RSC Anderlecht of Belgium, Amiens of France, Red Bull Salzburg of Austria and SK Brann Bergen of Norway.
The report out of Old Trafford indicates that Fenerbahce and the other four clubs are all keenly monitoring Kehinde’s current situation, with a view to making a swoop for him in the summer transfer window.
The 20-year-old has two more days remaining on his contract with United and could end up leaving the club as a free agent but his next club will have to pay compensation to the English Premier League side.
Kehinde has been offered a fresh two-year contract to extend his stay at Old Trafford but the stumbling block is that he is unhappy over the length of the deal they gave him and there are no guarantees that he’ll be integrated into the first team next season.
Kehinde, Marcus Rashford, Timothy Fosu-Mensah, Scott McTominay and Axel Tuanzebe represented Manchester United in the UEFA Youth League three years ago, but the others have left him behind in going on to make their first-team debuts.
