The issues between Galatasaray manager Igor Tudor with Bruma reached a new level when the winger was substituted in the 18th minute during Galatasaray’s defeat against Kasımpasa on Saturday.
The pair exchanged words during the game and as a result Tudor decided to take Bruma off. The youngster has been linked with Leicester City and Southampton in recent weeks, and the two clubs will watching these events with interest.
After the game Tudor, clearly annoyed by the Leicester and Southampton target, told Ntv: ”I love Bruma, he’s a young boy and very talented. I know I have to ignore some issues when managing Galatasaray, it’s no problem for me. But there’s a limit. You have to be respectful to your boss. If you want to become a serious competitor then you have to show respect to your manager. It’s unacceptable.”
Tudor also said: ”I’m not going to leave him out of the squad. He’s a young boy and young boys can make mistakes. He’ll be part of our squad for the final 4 games, that’s for sure.”
Recent reports in Turkish press suggests Bruma is currently unsettled at Galatasaray and Leicester City and Southampton could look to take advantage. Whilst Bruma may not have played his last game for the club, it certainly sounds like a move is possible.
Both Craig Shakespeare, or his successor, and Claude Puel will be looking to strengthen their squads in the summer window, and the former Sporting player is an option.
