Atletico Madrid winger Arda Turan has not been in talks with Barcelona according to his agent Ahmet Bulut.

“I am not going to say where Arda is going right now it is not the right time I would love to say but in three to four days the club will let you know anyway.”

Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo claimed that the 28-year-old winger was Barcelona bound and he was temporarily the bookmakers favourite.

The latest developments however, have seen Chelsea become favourites again to sign the Turkish international.

Chelsea could face competition from Manchester United who have also been closely linked with the 28-year-old winger.

Turan was also linked with French giants PSG but his agent ruled out a move to Ligue 1.

Bulut spoke directly to the Telegol football show on channel 360 denying rumours that a deal with PSG was imminent.

“I can say this for certain Arda Turan will not be joining PSG,” Bulut said.
