According to Turkish newspaper Hurriyet, Burnley made an offer to sign Fenerbahce striker Vedat Muriqi during the last window, and that they were the only club to do so.
There were reports in the Turkish media last month which said Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Leicester City were interested in signing the Kosovo international but Hurriyet report they didn’t follow their interest up with a bid.
They claim it was Burnley who made an official offer for the player, but both Fenerbahce and the player rejected the proposal as the 25 year old decided to commit himself to the Super Lig club at least until the end of the season.
Hurriyet talked with a source who’s close to Fenerbahce, and he revealed the bid from the Turf Moor side: “Yes, it’s true that Muriqi is on the list of lots of European clubs but Manchester United didn’t make a bid for him. Burnley are the only club who made an offer to Muriqi, but he decided to stay at Fenerbahce.”
The former Caykur Rizespor player will now spend the rest of the season at Fener but in the summer he could be on the move given their financial situation.
His contract with the Turkish side will expire at the end of June 2023.
