The Atletico Madrid midfielder has reportedly agreed to join the Champions of Europe
Arda Turan will complete a €35million move to Barcelona, according to talkSPORT’s Spanish football correspondent Begona Perez.
The Turkey international, who was attracting interest from Manchester United and Chelsea has reportedly completed a summer move to The Nou Camp, claims Perez.
“There could be an announcement in the next couple of days but it is pretty much done. The fee is €35million” said Perez.
The talkSPORT correspondent continued by insisting Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has been a fan of the Turkey international for some time.
Premier League interest
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has reportedly identified Turan as a key target this summer and could let Juan Cuadrado and Filipe Luis go to make way for the 28-year-old.
Cuadrado, who joined Chelsea from Fiorentina for £27million in January, could already be heading for the exit this summer if the price is right.
Chelsea team-mate Filipe Luis has also been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge with the Brazil international reportedly unhappy with the lack of playing time.
Luis, moved from Atletico last summer, but is open to a move back to the La Liga side which would see Turan go the other way.
Falcao joins Chelsea
Radamel Falcao, who played for Manchester United last season, has agreed to join Chelsea Football Club on a season-long loan from Monaco.
Falcao, 29, who is seen as a replacement for Didier Drogba was delighted to join the Stamford Bridge club and admitted he can’t wait for next season.
“I am very happy to join Chelsea and can’t wait to start training and help with our aim of retaining the league title and being successful in Europe” said Falcao.
