Arda determined to fight for place at Barcelona

Barcelona star Lionel Messi is reportedly considering his future at the club, while midfielder Arda Turan is said to be expected to leave Camp Nou for Galatasaray this week.

The reports claimed that the Barcelona were ready to let him go on loan despite Catalan's previous intent to sell him and recoup a part of the €34m (£31.2m, $40.5m) investment they made to lure him from Atletico only two years ago. "The only option for him to play in Turkey is here, we want Arda to retire at Galatasaray". However, following Neymar's move to PSG, the player's prospects don't seem to have improved much, leaving him in a limbo at Barcelona.

Per the source, the Lions are hoping to sign Turan on a loan deal.

The former Atletico Madrid man was the subject of heavy criticism following an altercation with a journalist on a plane, which caused him to announce his retirement from global duty - only to reverse that decision last month.

The window in Turkey closes on 8th September.

But, his boyhood club Galatasaray have been public about their interest in Turan as well.

Large sections of Barca fans pleaded with their club to move Turan on over the recently-closed summer transfer window, but both the board and player repeatedly insisted that a departure was never on the cards.

With his career unlikely to progress at all at Barcelona, and with no other suitors vying for him anymore, a move back to Galatasaray represents a golden opportunity for Turan to resurrect a stuttering career, and provide his best years to the club where he is likely to feature week in week out. 'I have three years of contract and I am going to stay'.
