According to widespread rumours, Turkey international, Arda Turan could be set to leave Atletico Madrid for Barcelon in the next couple of days. The tricky winger has spent four glorious years at the Vicente Calderon but has now expressed his desire to find success elsewhere.
The likes of Chelsea, Barcelona and Manchester United are keen to sign the former Galatasaray man but it is the reigning European champions who are favourites to land his signature.
And knowing that they need the void to be filled as quickly as possible, At Madrid have identified Colombia international, Juan Cuadrado as the player they want to fill the Turkish winger’s boots. The former Fiorentina winger has clearly struggled on every level during his short stay at Chelsea and could be allowed to leave this summer in a bid to revive his career.
Blues manager, Jose Mourinho is desperate to cut his losses on this one but knows that the club will struggle to recuperate the amount they paid Fiorentina for his signature back in January.
