34 million plus 7 add-ons
Arda Turan's signing for Barcelona may be official in the very next hours if the provisional board acceeds to Luis Enrique's demans.
Atletico Madrid demanded 41 million euros for the player -the release clause-, but Barcelona will end up paying less. At least in the beginning.
According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will pay 34 million euros for the midfielder, plus 7 in add-ons. These final 7 would be easily achievable because if Arda plays a minimum of games and is involved in quarterfinals and semifinals of the Champions League, Barcelona will pay them. So the total cost will be 41 as the release clause.
According to the same newspaper, Turan ended his holidays in Bodrum and today he met his agent in Estambul, in a meeting where he will close his future.
