Galatasaray offer Barca an on-loan contract for its ex-captain

According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are reportedly hopeful of shipping Arda Turan back to Galatasaray next week as Turkish transfer window does not shut until friday night.

Gala have been working on a deal to bring back the 30-year-old and the midfielder is expected to depart on a loan basis as the Istanbul Lions are unwilling to cover his salary and pay a transfer fee.

Arda won a Turkish League title with Gala between 2005 and 2011, before joining Atletico Madrid, where he lifted the Europa League, Copa del Rey and La Liga and then moved to Barcelona for around 41 million euros.
