Altay Bayindir has signed a deal with Manchester United that runs through June 2027, with the possibility of an additional year, pending international clearance.
53 clean sheets have been recorded in 166 career appearances for the 25-year-old Turkey international. He was an important member of Fenerbahce’s roster the previous season when they won the Turkish Cup and finished second in the Super Lig.
Upon signing, Bayindir said: “It is a huge honor to join Manchester United and become the first Turkish player to represent this incredible club.
“I have a passion for success, and I will give everything to help this special group of players to achieve our ambitions.
“I cannot wait to start working with such an experienced goalkeeping unit. We will support each other and drive high standards every day so that each of us is ready to perform whenever called upon.”
John Murtough, Manchester United football director, said: “Altay is an excellent addition to our squad and adds further quality to our already strong group of experienced goalkeepers.
“Having consistently performed at a high level in a strong European league, he has the qualities to support us in achieving our ambitions across all competitions this season and beyond.
