Galatasaray seek sponsor to bankroll deal for Barcelona attacker Arda Turan

Galatasaray president Dursun Ozbek is seeking to secure a sponsor to help fund a deal for Barcelona attacker Arda Turan.

Gala are willing to take the outcast off Barca's hands in January, though recognise they must match Turan's €8m salary to convince the Turk about the move.

Fanatik says Ozbek is already in talks with a local real estate company about bankrolling Turan's wages.

For their part, Barca are eager to offload Turan, with the veteran not in coach Ernesto Valverde's plans.

However, the midfielder has so far refused all offers with no proposals reaching his current personal terms.
