Bruma's former club Sporting Lisbon will receive €10 million for the sale, but that figure could rise to €13 million, "depending on Galatasaray's performance", the Portuguese club confirmed.

18-year-old Bruma attracted interest from Chelsea and Gala after a breakout season in the Portuguese Liga and his five goals at the Under-20 World Cup in July increased speculation he would be moving abroad. 

Sporting will also receive 25 per cent of any future sale for Bruma and it is likely the winger will feature prominently for Galatasaray in their Champions League campaign this season.
