According to Spanish media, Chelsea target Arda Turan chose Barcelona as his next team.

The deal is not closed yet but the Turkish attacking midfielder is set to join the Champions of Europe for a fee around £24m ( €35m).

The agreement was found after a meeting between Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu and Atletico chief executive Miguel Angel Marin.
