Having played the Turkish side in last season’s Champions League group stage, it appears a partnership has been struck up between Manchester United and Bursaspor.

According to various news sources Manchester United and Bursaspor will enter a mutually beneficial partnership that may see players from United end up at the Turkish club and although unlikely vice versa.

The exact nature of the deal is not 100% clear and more information will be made available in coming days if the deal does indeed go ahead but currently Turkish paper Milliyet are saying that it is a player deal whilst a spokesperson from the Turkish club stated:

“Our players and coaches will go there and theirs will arrive here. Different projects may come out once we sit down at the table to talk. We will soon take steps about this.”

This appears somewhat of a strange deal to be struck and I’m not 100% what the benefits will be but if true they will join a number of teams to have entered agreements with Manchester United with the most recent being FC Twente.
