Arda Turan is ready to real his exit from Barcelona, after his agent negotiated a deal for him to move to Basaksehir, the leaders of the Turkish league, on loan for a season and a half, until June 2019. His contract ends in 2020.
Barcelona have tried to sell him but the Turkish club are insisting on it being a loan deal. The Blaugrana currently pay Arda eight million euros a year, very high and something many clubs in his homeland cannot afford.
Arda arrived at Barcelona in the summer of 2015, although he could not play until January 2016 because of FIFA's ban on Barcelona registering players, for 34 million euros.
