Turan Joins Istanbul Basaksehir From Barcelona On Loan Deal


FC Barcelona confirmed on Saturday that they have reached a deal with Turkish side Basaksehir to loan them Turkish worldwide winger Arda Turan for the remainder of this season and for two more.

The negotiations intensified in the last hours and have culminated to a very unusual agreement.

The two clubs had reached a loan agreement for the 30-year-old Turkish global, but did not disclose the financial value of the deal, reports Efe.

The 30-year-old struggled to make an impact at Barcelona after joining the club in summer 2015 from Ateltico Madrid.

Jean Cius says the latest media attention is a chance to highlight what Haitian-Americans really represent: resilience. Roughly 13,000 of the state's immigrants came from Haiti and 5,600 people came from El Salvador.

Istanbul Basaksehir tops the Super Lig (Turkish League) standings after 17 games, and Turan should boost its prospects of winning the title.

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 made just 55 appearances for Barça in two-and-a-half years, scoring 15 goals.

During his time at Camp Nou, Arda won medals in LaLiga, the Copa del Rey and the Supercopa de Espana, but failed to hit the same high standards he produced at Atleti. Arda came to FC Barcelona in the summer of 2015 from Atlético Madrid but due to a Federation Internationale de Football Association transfer ban he was unable to make his debut until January 2016.
