Enes Unal has left Manchester City for Villarreal in a £12m deal which includes a buy-back clause in the region of £17.5m. The 20-year-old has agreed personal terms with the Spanish side and signed what is believed to be a four-year contract. Manchester City to promote trio of youngsters to Pep Guardiola’s first team Read more Unal joined City for £2m from Bursaspor in 2015 and the Turkish Super Lig Dylan Bundy Youth Jersey club will receive a development fee for the latest transfer. The striker had not been short of options following an impressive loan spell at the Dutch club Twente. Lille, Valencia, Monaco, Schalke, Porto and Benfica had all registered an interest before Villarreal clinched the deal. The Turkey international is unable to secure a work permit to play in England under existing Home Office regulations. Unal would have had to have featured in at least 45% of the Turkish national team games over the past 24 months, which he has not, or apply for a permit under the “exceptional talent” criteria. He has been out on loan for both seasons since joining City in 2015. He spent six months at Genk in Belgium followed by a brief stint at NAC Breda in 2015-16. Unal then joined Twente in another temporary move and scored 19 goals and provided four assists in all competitions. He finished the season as the highest-scoring Turkish player in Eredivisie history, with 18 of his goals coming in the league.

The head coach, Fatih Terim, is expected to include Unal for the next round of international games against Macedonia on 5 June and Kosovo on 11 June. Unal has been expected to reach the very top since breaking through at Bursaspor, for whom he scored 182 goals in 110 appearances at youth levels and for the first team. He scored 24 times in 25 games for the Turkey Under-16 team before making his debut for the seniors against Luxemburg aged 17. Aged 16, Unal became the youngest player to score in the Turkish top flight with a goal against GalatasarayGareth Bale fought through the pain, obliged to take pills to get him through training and matches, but he concedes that the Champions League final in his home city might still have come too soon for him to start. Real Madrid’s Cardiff?born forward admitted that he returned too soon after surgery on an ankle ligament injury sustained in November and that he is not yet fully fit. He said he was prepared to play a substitute’s role in the match with Juventus at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday, after six months of suffering. Bale’s ligament came away from his right ankle during a Champions League match against Sporting Lisbon in November and although he came back to action to score on his return against Espanyol 88 days later, he was still struggling with the effects of the operation, even though calf problems were cited as the immediate cause. Bale admits that he may have returned too soon and he was forced to withdraw in the first half of the clásico on 23 April. The 27-year-old has not played since, although he is in full training with team-mates as he works towards Cardiff. The debate in Spain has been over http://www.officialpadrestore.com/Rollie_Fingers_Jersey whether it would be Isco or Bale who starts the final but the Welshman appeared to have few doubts that it would be the Spaniard who gets the nod. Although he described the final as “very special” he will accept that. Indeed, he appears to expect that. It has been a long road back and it is not yet over. Marcelo and Dani Alves make Champions League final a battle of the full-backs Read more “I am not 100%: I haven’t played for six or seven weeks: I obviously had my operation which still really hasn’t recovered,” Bale said. “If I’m called upon to start, I will start obviously. But to last 90 minutes: I haven’t played a lot of football this year since my operation, so that would be difficult. Isco has been playing fantastically well for us, at the end of the season, so whatever the manager decides I will [accept it]. Whether he or I start, we’ll both be cheering each other on. “I’m sure [Zidane] will speak to us and I’ll find out at some point, but I have been working hard, training now the last few days. We had a practice game on Saturday and I came through it all unscathed. I feel strong, feel fit, [but] obviously match fitness is a different thing. “It has been a difficult season, so whatever I am required to do [I will do]. I obviously have Tony Gwynn Womens Jersey battled hard to get fit for this, and whatever is the best for the team is the most important thing: to lift that Champions League trophy is the most important thing.” As Bale explained the recovery process, he gave the strongest indication yet as to the gravity of his injury, the difficulties he faced and possible mistakes made in his rehabilitation, and the doubts it provoked. The time out of action has at least allowed him to focus more fully on a more fundamental, underlying problem: the rehabilitation of the ankle, which was still incomplete. “The last six or seven weeks have enabled me to rest my ankle a bit and really try to get it a bit better, and obviously recover from the injury which it caused,” Bale said. “I am not 100%, but I have been working hard, double sessions the last few weeks, to get myself as ready as I can, whether to start or to be involved at some point
