Enrique ‘no’ to Arda loan

Barcelona boss Luis Enrique has reportedly said ‘no’ to the prospect of new signing Arda Turan going to Galatasaray on loan.

The Turkish international joined the European champions on Monday but will be unable to make his debut until January, owing to the Catalan giants’ ongoing transfer embargo.

As such, it was reported that the 28-year-old could return to his homeland in the meantime to play for the club where he began his career.

However, it is said that Enrique would prefer Turan to remain at Camp Nou instead, acclimatising himself to life in his new surroundings and getting to know his teammates and the club’s philosophy.
