MANCHESTER UNITED have made a £6million offer for Fenerbahce goalkeeper Altay Bayindir, according to reports… and fans are fuming.
United are hoping to sign the Turkish shot-stopper as a backup for £47m Andre Onana.

Bayindir, 25, has been Fenerbhce’s No1 since 2019 and has 12 caps for the Turkish national side.
Goal has reported the Turkish team has given the 6ft 6in keeper permission to leave Istanbul to pursue a move away.
United have already made big changes in goal this summer as David De Gea‘s contract expired allowing him to leave as a free agent.
Erik ten Hag then completed the club’s biggest signing for a goalkeeper on Inter Milan’s Andre Onana.
That leaves 37-year-old Tom Heaton as United’s current No2.
A Manchester United transfer news account revealed the deal on Twitter earlier– and fans were not happy as they think Ten Hag’s side urgently needs a midfielder.
One fan said: “We need a midfielder.”
Another tweeted: “Don’t think 2nd GK is the priority lads.”
A third said: “Okay what about a midfielder we need.”
