£34m Man United target Arda Turan keeping low profile at Barcelona, Arsenal also in talks with star international

Barcelona star Arda Turan is keeping a low profile following his omission from Ernesto Valverde’s squad.

The Turkey international is yet to make an appearance for the La Liga giants this season and has been linked with a January exit from the club.

Spanish outlet Sport state that Turan has been ostracised from the squad and trains alone away from the rest of the squad. Per the source, the 30-year-old is refusing all contact with the media and hasn’t even shared a photo of himself on social media this month.

Turan was linked with a move to Manchester United over the summer. Spanish outlet AS claimed that Jose Mourinho held talks with the Turkey international.

Meanwhile CNN Turk have reported that Arsenal are in contact with Turan’s representatives and are contemplating a January move.
