Turan future decision due
Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan, who has stated his desire to play in England, will make a decision on his future this week, according to his agent.
The Turkey midfielder has set his sights on a move away from Madrid this summer and Liverpool, Manchester United and Chelsea have all been linked with his services, as well as European heavyweights AC Milan and Paris St-Germain.
The 28-year-old's agent Ahmet Bulut revealed over the weekend there are as many as six teams vying for the playmaker's services, but the former Galatasaray man will now make a decision on his future in the next four days.
"A lot of things about his transfer are being published but not everything they say is true," Bulut told NTVSpor.
"We want to clarify that at this time there is a lot of pressure about this situation but we don’t want to make a formal statement about his destination before he signs. That being said, in the next four days Arda will decide which team he’ll play for next season.
"Our decision really surprised Atletico Madrid. They don’t want Arda to leave and were persistent but in the end, they respected and accepted our decision.
"But of course, nothing is completely done until he signs. However, we made sure the message was clear that we wanted to leave Atletico," added Bulut.
Attacking midfielder Turan joined Atletico from Gala in 2011 for £8.5million and has won the Copa del Rey and La Liga in a four-year spell in the Spanish capital.Follow @LiverpoolFCPal
