Turan wants Premier League move - agent
Arda Turan intends to leave Atletico Madrid and wants to move to the Premier League, according to the Turkish star’s agent.
The 28-year-old joined Atleti from Galatasaray in 2011, and has since won La Liga, the Copa del Rey and the Europa League in his time at Vicente Calderon, whilst also helping the club reach the Champions League final in 2014.
However, Arda’s representative Ahmet Bulut has now revealed that his client is keen on a move to England this summer, with three teams already in negotiations over a possible move.
Bulut, though, says there is little chance of Arda moving to a club that does not play in the Champions League, given his release clause of €41 million.
"He intends to leave Spain this summer. It is his will to go out to play in the Premiership, that is where he would like to continue his career at this time," Bulut told AS.
"His departure from Atletico is not easy because he has a clause of €41m. There are ongoing talks with three teams at the moment. I cannot say their names, but they are the best of England and European football."
Bulut has confirmed claims that PSG are interested in signing his client, but he maintains that Arda would prefer a move to the Premier League amid links with Manchester United and Liverpool
"Yes, it's true, Milan and PSG are two of the six teams that are interested in him. But the Italian team does not go into our options because it does not play the Champions League,” he added.
“PSG is a possibility, but he has always had a burning desire to prove himself in England.”
