Yusuf Demir is a product of Austrian outfit, Rapid Vienna’s, youth system.

Throughout 2020/21 so far, Demir has already notched 17 outings across all competitions this season – including four in the Europa League, one of which came against Premier League outfit, Arsenal.
Demir is an attacking midfielder by trade but he is more than capable of playing on either flank or occasionally as a centre-forward.

Man United & Real Madrid linked with Yusuf Demir
After showing heaps of promise over the last year or so, Demir looks to be attracting interest from several of Europe’s elite clubs.
Two of which look to be Manchester United and Real Madrid.
According to a recent report from Spanish outlet, Defensa Central, Man United are the club which is ‘most attentive’ to Demir, though no firm offer is believed to have been made yet. This would make some sense given United look to be targeting younger stars of late, with both Amad Diallo and Facundo Pellistri arriving at Old Trafford in the last window.
Real Madrid are also said to be interested in Demir, who Defensa Central claim Vienna want around €10m for.
Demir’s current contract runs until the summer of 2022.
