Barca Confirm Arda Turan Move To Turkish Side Istanbul Basaksehir

Arda Turan has officially completed his move to Istanbul Basaksehir, both the Turkish club and  Barcelona announced.
A statement from the Catalan club read: "FC Barcelona and Istanbul Basaksehir FK agree on a loan deal for the Turkish player for the remainder of the season and two more.
“Arda Turan has played a total of 55 games for Barca, scoring 15 goals in his two-and-a- half years as a Blaugrana.

“In that time he has won 6 trophies: 1 league championship, 2 Copa del Rey, 1 Spanish Super Cup, 1 Club World Cup and 1 European Super Cup.

“As such the Turk leaves after completing a clean sweep of domestic trophies."
The 30-year-old playmaker returns to his native Turkey having failed to make a single appearance under Ernesto Valverde this season.

Arda joined Barcelona from Atletico in the summer of 2015, and made his first team debut in January 2016 because of a transfer ban.

This latest development will probably also mean that Philippe Coutinho will play with number 7 at the Spanish club.
