Barcelona's Turan returns to Turkey on loan

Barcelona's Turan returns to Turkey on loan

Despite his failure to fit in as one of Barcelona's premier stars, Turan is still in the prime years of his career and could be a valuable asset to Basaksehir if he's able to rediscover some of the form he displayed at Atleti and during his first spell in his home country.

Turan has moved to Başakşehir on a two-and-a-half-year loan deal, meaning, as things stand, that he will see out the remainder of his Barcelona contract with the Turkish outfit.

In a tweet, the club shared a video of a crossword being filled in with the key answers being "Arda Turan".

Turan joined Barcelona in 2015 from Atletico Madrid for £24.2m but with the arrival of club-record signing Philippe Coutinho, the 30-year-old has chose to pursue first-team opportunities in Turkey.

Basaksehir have risen rapidly over the last two seasons to rival the established Istanbul triumvirate of Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray.

Los Azulgranas agreed on a two-and-a-half-season loan for the midfielder, and maintain the right to sell the player in that period (the Turkish club are the most likely suitors) in every transfer window, as well as receiving unstated performance-based variables.

Turan receives an annual salary of around eight million euros at the Catalan club, according to Spanish media.

However, the 100-time capped Turkish global has since failed to make a single appearance for the Blaugrana to this point in the current campaign, leading to increasing speculation that Turan would finally be set for a move away from the Camp Nou this month.

Turan has also expressed open support for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, attending rallies to back "my commander-in-chief" following the July 2016 attempted coup.
