Manchester United target Arda Turan denies reports that he is close to signing for Barcelona
Arda Turan has handed Manchester United a boost in their reported pursuit of the Atletico Madrid winger after the player took to social media to deny claims that he was on the verge of joining Barcelona.
The midfielder has been heavily linked with a transfer away from the Madrid in recent days, with the Red Devils, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain all touted as possible destinations for the player.
Recent reports have suggested that Turan is on the verge of completing a switch to Barcelona.
However, the player himself took to Twitter to deny the reports on Thursday evening.
He tweeted: “Reports about my move are not correct. I am on holidays and resting.”
Bazı medya organlarında, transfer kutlaması yaptığıma ilişkin çıkan haberler doğru değil. Sadece tatil yapıyorum ve dinleniyorum.
