Barcelona midfielder, Arda Turan joins Istanbul Basaksehir on loan

Arrival of Turkish star soccer player leads to scuffles at Istanbul Airport

Istanbul Basaksehir FK, Turkish league leaders, on Saturday announced they had reached an agreement to sign midfielder Arda Turan on loan from La Liga leaders FC Barcelona.

Turan, a 30-year-old Turkish worldwide, made the move to Catalonia in 2015 following a hugely-successful 4-year stint with La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.

"Arda Turan is returning to his country wearing the orange kit (of Basaksehir)".

And having found himself out of manager Ernesto Valverde's plans, Turan has been given an escape route for the remainder of his contract in Istanbul.

Meanwhile, Turan, who made just 55 appearances for Barça in two-and-a-half years and scored 15 goals, will be relieved after returning home to Turkey, where he played for Galatasaray and Manisaspor.

However, the 100-time capped Turkish global has since failed to make a single appearance for the Blaugrana to this point in the current campaign, leading to increasing speculation that Turan would finally be set for a move away from the Camp Nou this month.

A Barcelona statement on Saturday read: 'During this period Barca reserve the right to transfer the player to a club belonging to UEFA, and will receive a variable fee according to his performances.

Turan was also part of the team in the six titles the club managed to claim: One League, two Copas del Rey, one Spanish Super Cup, one Club World Cup and one European Super Cup.
