Arda Turan has admitted that he still harbours ambitions of playing for Barcelona again.

Yes, that Arda Turan.

Somehow the Turkey international is still a Blaugrana player with his contract at Camp Nou coming to an end in May.

He hasn’t actually played a game for the club since April 2017, having spent two seasons on loan at Istanbul Basaksehir and then having that move terminated due to various off-field issues.

But the 33-year-old has astonishingly claimed that he still feels he can be a part of Quique Setien’s squad.

“I have made mistakes, of course. But it’s not like I’m done,” he is quoted as saying by Squawka.

“When I start playing football three months from now, I can be better than everyone else after three or four games. I can still be like the old Arda Turan.

“I want to play football for a club where I can feel happy. I can still play football at a high level for four or five years.

“I have a contract with Barcelona. I wanted it to be the case until the end of the season. This is what I wanted.”
