The Red Devils were linked with the Turkish international before the transfer deadline.
Manchester United will reportedly renew their efforts to sign Arda Turan in January after seeing an bid turned down by Atletico Madrid during the summer.
Reports in Turkey claim United boss David Moyes made an approach to the Spanish club for Turan before the transfer deadline as he looked to bounce back from the failed pursuits of Barcelona duo Cesc Fabregas and Thiago Alacantra, who signed for Bayern Munich.
Turkish news outlet AMK are now suggesting the 26-year-old is still a key target for Moyes and the Scot will look to bring him to Old Trafford when the window reopens in the New Year – although a rumoured €24 million release clause could prove a stumbling block.
It’s unlikely United will rush into anything regarding the Turkey international after the fiasco surrounding the activation of Ander Herrera’s release clause at Athletic Bilbao, and will explore every angle before pressing forward with a possible deal.
Turan, a winger that is comfortable on either flank, has been linked with a move to the Premier League before with Chelsea and Liverpool mooted as potential suitors, but was considered out of their price range.
