Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has confirmed that new signing Arda Turan could complete a loan move away from the club this summer. 

As reported by the Mirror, Bartomeu has insisted that boss Luis Enrique will make the final decision over the player's future, while he's admitted that the former Atletico Madrid man would have to join a team not playing in the Champions League. 

Turan, of course, won't be eligible to play for the Catalans until January after the club were handed a transfer ban, so it appears that he could make a temporary switch away from the Nou Camp, as he goes in search of first-team football in the opening half of the upcoming campaign.

The midfielder had been linked to the Premier League duo of Manchester United and Chelsea, but Bartomeu's recent comments have seemingly ruled those clubs out of landing him on a loan deal. 

Turan could, however, complete a switch to the duo of Tottenham or Liverpool, who have also been credited with interest in his signature. 

Loan deal possible 

It remains to be seen as to whether either club would be willing to take him on a short term deal, but he'd no doubt prove a fine short term signing for near enough any team in the Premier League. 

One thing's for sure, a move away from the La Liga giants is possible, as Bartomeu told RAC1: "Loaning him out] is a possibility, but the final decision must be made by coach Luis Enrique and it must be a purely technical decision.”

“It must be a team not playing in the Champions League."

Why not?

If Turan really does become available, then surely he'd make a great option for either of Tottenham or Liverpool, who will be determined to push on in the 2015/16 campaign.

Ultimately, it's not everyday that such a talented player becomes available on a short-term deal, so it's a deal that must be looked into.

At the end of the day, Turan would provide a fine option for either club in the early stages of the season, and would no doubt thrive on playing in the Premier League for the first time in his career.

He'd certainly suit both Liverpool and Spurs, too, who will most certainly be hoping to express themselves fluently when going forward next season. It would be crazy to overlook him, even if it's just for a couple of months...
