The 30-year-old will hope a move back to Istanbul-the city in which he began his senior career with Galatasaray-will give him the freedom he once enjoyed so much at the Vicente Calderon, where he first burst on to the scene as a big success in La Liga.
But, as has been confirmed on Barcelona's official website this morning, Turan has in fact joined Turkish Super Lig leaders İstanbul Başakşehir. Basaksehir's buy-out options remained unspecified.
Turan, a 30-year-old Turkish global, made the move to Catalonia in 2015 following a hugely-successful 4-year stint with La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid.

After his move to Barca, the authorities in the Istanbul district of Bayrampasa announced that they had named the road where he grew up "Arda Turan Street" in his honour.
Basaksehir will pay Barca in variables dependent on a number of factors, including appearances and goals, as well as the team's success with Turan at the club.
Basaksehir club president Goksel Gumusdag said in a statement: 'Arda Turan is returning to his country wearing the orange kit (of Basaksehir). He became the sixth player in Barça history to score a hat-trick in the Champions League, after Messi, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Samuel Eto'o and Neymar.This also marked Turan's first hat-trick in European competitions.
