Turan is expected to feature in the weekend clash against his former side Atleti in the La Liga. The match will mark his first game against the Rojiblancos since joining Barcelona.
Barcelona have won every single game since Turan made his debut scoring 23 goals and conceding just four times over the past seven games in all competitions.
The bearded winger joined Atleti from Galatasaray in 2012 winning every domestic title and all European cups except for the Champions League although he was part of the side that reached the 2014 final.
