Manchester United and Liverpool after Atletico Madrid star


Premier League duo Liverpool and Manchester United are set to battle it out in January for the signature of Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan, however, the midfielder has just signed a new contract at the Spanish club with a £33million release clause included in the contract.

Reports are suggesting in Turkey, where the player is originally from, that the two English sides have sent scouts out to Spain in order to watch the Turkish international, but the price-tag may be enough to put both of them off.

The 26-year-old would bring experience to both camps and has enjoyed a good campaign in Spain so far this season, contributing three goals and five assists to Atletico Madrid, who are second in La Liga.

Turan’s agent confirmed in an interview last season that there is interest from England for his client and he also admitted that he may be interested in playing in England one day.

“A destination in the Premier League would be to the liking of the player and I can confirm there are clubs interested, like the two mentioned,” said Bulut.

“He wants to work in England.”
