The agent of Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan has caused quite a stir by revealing that his client wants to leave los Colchoneros.
The Turkish midfielder developed into a key player at Vicente Calderon shortly after arriving at the club from Galatasaray and he has been integral to Atletico’s chase for glory over the last two seasons.
Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone was prepared to build his team around Turan and Falcao, but it appears the attacking midfielder will not be staying at Vicente Calderon for much longer.
Arda’s representative Ahmet Bulut dropped a real bombshell by saying that his client wants out at the end of the season.
“I have wanted to see him play for another team in another league and Arda also wants to play for another club, to taste a different experience,” agent Ahmet Bulut told Turkish TV station TRT. “We are currently working on it.”
Arda Turan joined los Colchoneros in a €13 million deal in the summer of 2011 and has since scored 7 goals in 47 La Liga appearances for the club.
He has been in fine form this season, scoring 4 goals and setting up another 3 in 14 La Liga matches.
