Chelsea target and Barcelona midfielder Arda Turan has bought a house near Stamford Bridge, according to Turkish Football.
Turan emerged as one of the best attacking midfielders in the world during his time at Atletico Madrid. His high work-ethic made him a dream for Diego Simeone. Accompanied with his superb creative talents, Turan was integral to Atletico’s successes both domestically and in Europe.
It earned him a move to Barcelona, where he is already having the best goal-scoring season of his career. The Turk has found the back of the net 13 times this season, his second highest-scoring season was for Galatasaray in 2008/09 when he bagged 12.
He hasn’t been able to establish himself as a cornerstone in Luis Enrique’s side, however, and he could well be on the move if Turkish Football are to be believed.
Turkish Football believe that Turan is a target for league leaders Chelsea, and he has fuelled speculation by buying a house near Stamford Bridge. What a signing that would be for Antonio Conte’s men.
After the painful 4-0 defeat by PSG, FC Barcelona’s squad entered a reflection process, with some sending out messages of hope and unity, like Neymar and Marc-Andre ter Stegen did on Wednesday.
On Thursday the players had a rest day and Arda Turan decided to join the ranks, uploading a photo to Instagram of the Camp Nou from the last Clasico there, along with the words “It’s still not over”.
The Turk missed the game in Paris because he was injured but will be hoping he can feature in the second leg on March 8.
