Enes Unal signs for Manchester City

Manchester City have announced the signing of striker Enes Unal from Super Lig side Bursaspor for an undisclosed fee believed to be in the region of £2 million.

Unal smashed records at every level in Turkey for club and country. He scored 25 goals in 24 games for Turkey’s Under-16s and managed to score an astounding 181 goals in 108 games at the youth level in the Coca-Cola Academy League.

The Turkish international has scored four goals in 37 appearances as a substitute for Bursaspor since 2013. He became the youngest player ever to score in the Super Lig as a 16-year-old by equalising against Galatasaray a few weeks after making his debut.

The 18-year-old is Manuel Pellegrini’s first signing of the summer and is expected to join City’s youth academy before eventually getting a chance to play for their senior squad.

However, he may get a chance to play first-team football during City’s pre-season tour of Australia where the Citizens will go up against Roma and Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.
