Manchester United face battle to sign £33m La Liga star

Manchester United face a summer transfer battle if they want to land high-flying target Arda Turan, as Juventus have now joined them in his pursuit.

According to reports in the Italian press, the Serie A giants are keen on the idea of bringing Turan to Turin as they’ve cooled their interest in Paris Saint-Germain’s Jeremy Menez. The Turkish international has been a key part of Diego Simeone’s Atletico side this campaign, and is wanted by David Moyes as he plots an end of season revamp of his flagging United squad.

It’s thought clubs interested in the winger will have to match his release clause if they want to prise him away from Spain; a fee that is rumoured to stand at €40million, or £33million. Even then Simeone is unlikely to want to let him leave, and it will probably take a good deal of negotiation to convince Turan that his future lies away from the Vicente Calderon.

With United looking unlikely to be in the Champions League next season Moyes may have to offer the 27-year-old a luxurious salary in order to pip Juve, who are comfortable favourites to retain their Italian title. Turan has played 31 times for Atletico this year, scoring seven goals.
