Atletico Madrid midfielder Arda Turan is reportedly expected to undergo a medical with Manchester United and join the Premier League giants this week.
Turkish-football.com claims that the La Liga winner, who has scored 20 goals in 163 games for Atletico, has already agreed terms with United and that a deal is imminent.
The latest developments follow Turan’s agent Ahmet Bulut ruling out a move to Paris Saint-Germain on the 360 channel football show Telegol.

But Bulut said that he could not reveal which clubs he is in talks with ahead of an announcement on Turan’s future “within the next four days.”
He told NTV Spor. “There are lots of rumours in the press but I cannot say anything now although I would like to. Without the signature and agreement I cannot break my silence but Arda will know his new team within the next four days.”
Gazzetta dello Sport report that United have matched Turan’s £29m million release clause. However, Chelsea are still thought to be in contention to sign the 28-year-old and may have an advantage because of their close relations with Atletico.
The Blues signed star striker Diego Costa and Filipe Luis from the Rojiblancos last season and have previously allowed goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois to join Madrid on loan.
