Arda Turan is set to return to Barcelona after having his contract terminated by Basaksehir.
The Turkish midfielder announced the termination of his contract with the Turkish Super Lig side on Tuesday. The midfielder joined the Turkish Super Lig side on a two-and-a-half-year loan deal in January 2018. Turan, however, is back in the reckoning with the club releasing a statement to confirm his departure.
The Turk reportedly met with club president Goksel Gumusdag before the announcement. Turan and Basaksehir parted ways on good terms according to statements released by both players and the club. Arda also took to social media to thank the club and their president following his exit.
“Our footballer Arda Turan met with Basaksehir Chairman Goksel Gumusdag and requested to leave the club to open a new page in his career. Gumusdag positively responded to his request and therefore, Turan’s contract was annulled with a mutual agreement,” the club’s official statement read.
