Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona have reached an agreement for the transfer of Arda Turan to the Blaugrana club at the own behest of the Turkish International. The Board of Directors of the Catalonian squad and our Club have agreed on the inclusion of a sale clause of Arda Turan to our organisation for the fixed amount of the operation minus 10% that the next Board of Directors that will be chosen in the next elections of FC Barcelona could execute before midnight of the 20th of July.
Following the agreement between both clubs, Arda Turan said: "These have been four incredible years. I have lived very special moments in Atlético and I will never forget my teammates, the fans and everyone in the Club. I can only thank everybody."
From Atlético de Madrid we thank him for all the effort he has made in the defence of our colours and wish him the best of luck in his next destination.
