RB Leipzig close in on Bruma

It was confirmed on Sunday that RB Leipzig sporting director Ralf Rangnick was in Istanbul on Saturday to speak with both Bruma and Galatasaray over a potential move.

“I was in Istanbul yesterday. We’re in good talks with the player and the club,” said Rangnick. “Bruma is much quicker than your average player, especially on the break, which makes him very interesting for us.”

Kicker report the deal could potentially cost Leipzig around €15 million whilst the Portugal U21 player would sign a contract until 2021.

Rangnick hopes to complete the deal by the middle of next week.
