Red Bull confirm signing of winger Bruma from Galatasaray

RB Leipzig have signed Portuguese winger Bruma from Galatasaray on a five-year deal.

The 22-year-old, who was born in Guinea-Bissau, made a significant impact for Galatasaray last season as he scored eleven goals and created 63 chances in the league.

Bruma is part of the Portugal squad that will be taking part in this summer’s U21 European Championships and is an extremely bright talent.

A direct and skilful player, Bruma was at Galatasaray for four years, although he spent part of that period on loan at Gaziantepspor and then Real Sociedad.

Excellent at bursting past opponents, he was successful with 69% of his attempted take-ons in the league last season.

To much surprise, RB Leipzig finished in second place in the Bundesliga last season and have already set about attempting to improve their squad to ensure that they can cope with the demands of being involved in the Champions League.

Bruma had an average shot accuracy of 57% in the league last season
