Barcelona reportedly want £27m for Arda Turan, amid links to Arsenal, Manchester United and former side Galatasaray.
Following our report yesterday that Manchester United are now interested in the Barcelona midfielder, the Catalan club have now added a price tag to the player. TalkSPORT claim that Barcelona would only let him go for £27m and aren’t interested in any loan offers.
The report also states interest from Arsenal and Chelsea earlier in the summer, but Manchester United have edged ahead in the race. Turan has struggled at Barcelona since making his move from Atletico Madrid in 2015. After arriving at the Camp Nou, he averaged just 18 league appearances per season.
As a result of the lack of playing time, the 30-year-old has been linked with a move away from Barcelona but nothing substantial has happened yet. Turan’s agent has reportedly denied any deal being close to completion too.
Galatasaray, Turan’s former club, have so far struggled to make any headway in bringing the attacking-midfielder back to Turkey. Whether any club is willing to pay £27m to sign Turan remains to be seen, however.
