Of course, this maybe the case that the 30-year-old has invested his capital for personal reasons, but looking at his prospect of staying in Barcelona, it can be suggested that he is on the move.
Furthermore, the Turkish newspaper Fotomac (via Sport) has reported that he is willing to join the Blues and has begun talks for a potential transfer.
The 3o-year-old attacking midfielder has been an in and out personnel this season, but has been in fine form whenever stepped on to the field. His form has seen him score 13 goals and 6 assists this season already – which is his personal best since his 2008-09 season with Galatasaray when he bagged 12 goals and further assisted 14 strikes.
Back in January, the Sun claimed that a Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande will offer the former Atletico Madrid man a whopping offer of £330,000 a week and will pay a fee of around £44 million to Barcelona, but nothing ever materialized.
Turan was a revelation while his time at Vicente Calderon and that earned him his high-profile move to Barcelona, but this has been a mixed ride for the Turk.
Furthermore, it is fair to say that Barcelona will be making a huge overhaul in the coming summer and will be looking to replace the ageing legs of Andres Iniesta and inconsistency of Ivan Rakitic. But besides that, Luis Enrique’s future at the Camp Nou is in immense doubt as well, hence the probability of Turan leaving Barcelona can be considered as 50-50.
In another word; It is not over until it’s over.
