"This is not just a transfer for Basaksehir, but a transfer for all of Turkey".
Barcelona have officially confirmed that Arda Turan will be loaned to Basaksehir in a deal that sees the Turkey worldwide join the club until 2020.
And having found himself out of manager Ernesto Valverde's plans, Turan has been given an escape route for the remainder of his contract in Istanbul.
The Brazilian could make his club debut as early as next weekend against Real Betis if he is fit
The two clubs had reached a loan agreement for the 30-year-old Turkish worldwide, but did not disclose the financial value of the deal, reports Efe.
Turan's new club Basaksehir have risen fast over the last two seasons to rival the established Istanbul triumvirate of Besiktas, Fenerbahce and Galatasaray and lead the Super Lig by a point.
It is somewhat surprising to see Barca let Turan leave on loan for such a lengthy period of time, given that he is surplus to requirements at Camp Nou and a transfer fee and a permanent departure would be more fitting for the 30-year-old.Читайте также: Jaguars Injury Report: LB Brown, PR Mickens listed as questionable against Steelers
The Catalan club is to get variables depending on the Turan's performance in the Turkish League, while Istanbul Basaksehir reserves the option of buying the player.
Turan was also part of the team in the six titles the club managed to claim: One League, two Copas del Rey, one Spanish Super Cup, one Club World Cup and one European Super Cup.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
