The transfer window is lit. Arda Turan’s agent has confirmed the midfielder will leave Atletico this summer.
The Turkish midfielder still has two years left on his current, but handed in a transfer request which has been accepted by Atletico Madrid.
“Arda has won everything at Atletico Madrid in four years,” agent Ahmet Bulut told NTVSpor.
“We’re in search of better options for him and decided to definitely leave Atletico Madrid.
“The Atletico Madrid board were surprised by our decision because they didn’t want to give him up.
“But we were insistent and they showed respect to this and accepted his departure.”
Arda’s representative has already publicly claimed that the player is set on a switch to the Premier League, though he also alleged that AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain are also interested.
“There is a lot of speculation about him but none of the rumours are completely true,” Ahmet added.
“We want to reveal his new team as soon as possible because there is so much pressure on us.
“Arda’s new team will be clear within four days.”
