The Spanish newspaper reports that the Turkish international has now been told that he no longer has a future at the Camp Nou, and that Barca will seek to sell him this summer if the right bid comes along.
One avenue that has closed for the 30 year old however, is a switch to the Chinese Super League. Sport say that Guangzhou Evergrande have ended their interest after a initially proposing a €20m a season salary to Arda, with a €50m transfer fee also being put on the table.
Arsenal, Juve and Turkish clubs won’t go anywhere near those figures and Barcelona fear they may find it hard to find a buyer for the midfielder this summer. They will reportedly turn to super agent Jorge Mendes, who works alongside the player’s agent Ahmet Bulut, to try and find a new club for the Turkish star.
