Atletico Madrid playmaker Arda Turan has confirmed he is in talks with multiple clubs over a potential transfer switch this summer.
The Turkish international, who scored two goals and made four assists in La Liga last season, confirmed via his Twitter account that his agent is negotiating a transfer with ‘3-4’ different teams.
This news follows his agent’s comments last week confirming Turan’s desire to move to the Premier League.
It is no secret that Turan sees his footballing future away from Madrid. The 28-year-old has expressed a desire to leave the La Liga outfit some days ago, with Old Trafford a possible destination for the Turkey captain.
The transfer rumors are not entirely correct. My agent is currently in touch with 3-4 clubs. I will update you all if a deal is made.

Man United fans may be dubious as to whether Turan would actually improve their current squad as with two goals and four assists, he hardly has breathtaking figures. Memphis Depay, Ashley Young, Juan Mata and Angel di Maria all boast more impressive statistics than the Turkish international for last season.
There also remains the question of where Turan would fit in to the squad. Depay is a player who Louis van Gaal will see as crucial for next season so if Turan comes in, would he really be improving the team?
