FC Barcelona's Ninth Departure Revealed?

With the transfer window still open in Turkey, an FC Barcelona star is reportedly on the verge of being the club's ninth departure in past couple of months.

According to RAC1 radio station, Turkey superstar Arda Turan will join his boyhood club Galatasaray on a two-year loan deal within the next few hours.

The 30-year-old, who cost the Barca €34 million (R524 million) in 2015, has struggled to for regular game time since his move from Atletico Madrid to the Camp Nou.

Turan has apparently been told that he is not in Ernesto Valverde's plans for this season and is therefore free to seek regular playing time elsewhere.

Earlier this week, the player commented on his future with the Blaugrana, and insisted he was happy to stay and fight for his place.

"I'm staying. I'm very happy here, and I have a contract for another three years," Turan said, as quoted by Beyaz Futbol.

"Galatasaray is my home, but I know they don't want me now."

Turan has made 55 appearances for the Catalan giants, scoring 15 goals and assisting 11 further strikes.
