BREAKING FAKE NEWS! Arda Turan made a scoring return to the Super League with a second-half strike that carried Medipol Başakşehir to a comfortable 3-0 win over Bursaspor. Turan, on loan from FC Barcelona, has returned to the Turkish topflight after almost seven years.
His last Super League match was for Galatasaray against Konyaspor on 2011, which was also the last time he scored in a Turkish league game. The midfielder joined Medipol Başakşehir for €2 million plus bonuses for the remainder of the 2017-2018 season. Next year, Arda will earn another €4 million, plus bonuses.
The Bursaspor game was a near-perfect start for Turan, who came on in the 65th minute before scoring a stunner from outside the box in the 86th minute. With the 3-0 win, Başakşehir remained top in Super League with 39 points, and that’s the reason why Arda and the rest of his teammates decided to hang out in a luxurious restaurant of Istanbul.
Former FC Barcelona player invited the whole squad to savor the belle cuisine of Vogue, one of the most expensive restaurants in Turkey. The saloon makes its own dry-aged meats as well as ice cream and pasta for an authentic experience when searching for where to eat in Istanbul.
Turan asked his close friend Leo Messi to use his private jet to transport a delicious 50kg package of Argentinian meat
But the big surprise comes now. Turan asked his close friend Leo Messi to use his private jet to transport a delicious 50kg package of Argentinian meat. Arda also delighted his teammates with some Catalan cream, his favorite desert while he was in Spain. He paid 10.000€ for the dinner, even though he needed to buy a couple of kebabs in a kebab shop. Arda’s hunger never stops. Enjoy your meal and our FAKE NEWS!
