Turan moves to Istanbul Basaksehir FK on loan

Arda Turan has joined Turkish league leaders Istanbul Basaksehir on a two-and-a-half-year loan deal from Barcelona.

However, while the fact that Turan has departed the club may not come as much of a surprise, the format of the deal to take him away from Catalunya is something of a head-scratcher. Basaksehir's buy-out options remained unspecified.

Turan appeared in 55 games with the Catalan club, scoring 15 goals. Furthermore, his general behaviour in the final months at the club was repeatedly questioned and deemed unprofessional.

The duration of the loan spans the remainder of Turan's contract, all but ending his career with the La Liga (Spanish league) giant after two-plus seasons. "This is not just a transfer for Basaksehir, but a transfer for all of Turkey", club president Goksel Gumusdag said in a statement.

The Sheriff's Office is recommending Vargas-Rosas be charged with making terroristic threats, a felony, and disorderly conduct. Because of this incident, all lanes of southbound I-94 near Wisconsin 50 in Kenosha County were shut down for a time.

The fourth-most capped Turkish player will also be hoping to return to his best for the national team after reversing his decision to retire from worldwide football in August.

The 30-year-old joined Barcelona from rivals Atletico Madrid in 2015 for a fee of £29m.

Turan, a 30-year-old Turkish worldwide, made the move to Catalonia in 2015 following a hugely-successful 4-year stint with La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.
