Barcelona v Sporting

Arda Turan has been recalled to training earlier than expected as Barcelona look to get the Turkish international back into shape ahead of the upcoming season.

According to the Spanish outlet Sport, Turan is the only international player who participated in Euro 2016 to be asked to return on Monday.

The 29-year-old will join the first team squad in England to take part in the pre-season training camp and is expected to play against Celtic in Dublin on July 30.

Mundo Deportivo have reported that Barcelona will listen to offers for Turan that match their £20 million valuation. Both Chelsea and Arsenal are reported to be in the race to sign the Turkish international.

Turan has another four-years remaining on his contract with Barcelona. However, the Turkish international revealed that he was looking for a house in the city in an interview with Hürriyet back in March 2015.

“I am thinking about buying a house in London nothing too fancy something like a 180 square meter flat I just would like a place in London,” Turan said.
