This is a past option ( was first studied last March) that has been re-taken up as Atletico sees the DIEGO option ( Brazilian Wolfsburg player ) complicate itself & need to beef up their midfield with a "creative" player. This area is a long time "Achilles heel" of the Club & they believe that the Turkish International Turan will be able to fill the gap & do the job. The player has had offers from English Football but prefers LA LIGA, were Atletico is willing to pay around 13M€ to get the player for the new season.
My only question is, with 75M€ in the bank from the selling of Ujfalusi, De Gea & Aguero, is Turan the only option in all European Football for a creative midfielder?
OFFICIAL NEWS: Turan signs for the next 4 years at a transfer price of 12M€
