£23m Chelsea target wants Barcelona stay says agent

Barcelona Arda Turan

Chelsea became the latest club to join the race for Barcelona star Arda Turan according to Sport.

The report claims that Barcelona are considering selling Turan and that the Blues as well as Arsenal, Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are all interested.

The Sun claim that Barcelona could be willing to sell him for a cut-price £23 million deal despite signing him for more just last season.


Turan’s agent has however, denied reports that his client is on the move and underlined that he is happy at the club.

Speaking to Emre Sarigul of Turkish-football.com [via the Guardian], Bulut said: “The interest [in Arda] is normal but the rumours saying he is leaving Barcelona are false, he is happy at the club.”

Italian giants Juventus and Bundesliga outfit Borussia Dortmund have also been closely linked with the Turkish international winger over the past week.

Turan does of course still have another four-years remaining on his contract and only joined Barcelona last season from Atletico Madrid.

The bearded winger has won every domestic title in Spanish football as well as every European trophy except the Champions League.

Turan is expected to join Barcelona for pre-season training despite the rumours linking him with a move elsewhere.
