Turkey is an increasingly popular holiday destination for Spaniards with over 350,000 tourists visiting in 2008 alone.
Spain is home to a small Turkish community of 4,000 with Turan among one of the leading pillars in the community.
Turan first moved to Spain in 2012 joining Atletico Madrid from Galatasaray on a then record move from the Super League.
The 29-year-old winger has settled in to life in Spain picking up the local language and has a home in Madrid and now in Barcelona.
