Manchester United and Tottenham hear asking price for Baris Alper Yilmaz

Manchester United and Tottenham have received more information about Baris Alper Yilmaz and learned what Galatasaray’s asking price is.

According to Heber 3Manchester United and Tottenham have learned Baris Alper Yilmaz’s summer asking price. The Premier League giants are interested in the 24-year-old Turkish international, with Galatasaray expected to demand at least €30 million for the striker.

Baris Alper Yilmaz costs €30 million

Baris Alper Yilmaz may be less prolific in attack, but he brings something different to the table. While his goal-scoring numbers aren’t on par with his more prolific colleagues in the world of football, he is one of those attackers who can bring others into play quite competently.

Galatasaray’s 102 points in a season is no surprise, given the quality of their squad. Indeed, Yilmaz played a crucial role in facilitating the match for his team-mates as they won the Turkish league title together in May. His performances have attracted the interest of many clubs, with Manchester United and Tottenham following him into the European Championship.

The Premier League giants are considering the 24-year-old Turkish international as a top option, although he is not the only striker they are tracking. He has played all three games at Euro 2024 but has yet to open his account, which he hopes to do against Austria in Turkey’s round of 16.

However, Galatasaray will demand €30 million from suitors and will only sell Yilmaz for that price. It is justified to a certain extent, given his performances and what he brings to the team. Whether Manchester United and Tottenham are prepared to do that much remains to be seen, but it is undoubtedly within the reach of those Premier League teams.

Premier League dup hunts for other strike targets

Manchester United have held internal talks over Joshua Zirkzee and are seriously considering a move for the Bologna forward. INEOS have outlined a specific profile of a striker they want to sign for the team, and this includes the player being young and having a higher ceiling.

Tottenham are chasing someone with goalscoring potential and a higher upside for their future. They could replace Richarlison, who is coming off a second straight season with disappointing results since his £60m move from Everton in 2022.
