5 destinations for Barcelona outcast Arda Turan
Homecomings are hard to resist. There’s so much romanticism about going back to where you came from, where your story started in order to finish what you began.
That’s why the rumours of a move back to Turkey and Galatasaray can’t be far away from Turan’s mind. The Istanbul side haven’t got European football this season but are well positioned in the Super Lig, sitting just a point behind surprise leaders Istanbul Basaksehir.
However, if they do want to overcome the rest of the strong teams in Turkey, they need an extra attacking option. Tolgay Cigerci has been productive in small doses, Sofiane Feghouli and Younes Belhanda are creative forces but none have the pedigree of the 99-capped Turkish legend.
With Fatih Terim in the hot seat as well, it might be too hard to resist. Not many get a chance at that fairytale conclusion, so it’s not impossible to see Turan be on the first plane home.Published 10 Jan 2018, 10:30 IST
