Atletico ties midfielder Arda Turan until 2017
Atletico Madrid says Turkey midfielder Arda Turan has agreed to
a three-year contract extension, tying him to the Spanish club
until the end of the 2016-17 season.
The 26-year-old Turan joined Atletico from Galatasaray in 2011
and has become a key playmaker for coach Diego Simeone’s squad.
Turan scored in Atletico’s 3-1 win over Zenit St. Petersburg in
their Champions League opener on Wednesday. He has also scored one
goal through four rounds in the Spanish league this season.
Turan says ”after two years wearing the Atletico shirt I feel
like part of this club’s big family.”
