Atletico Madrid president says Chelsea made no contact for winger


Chelsea never made contact with Atletico Madrid to sign Arda Turan, president Enrique Cerezo has revealed.

The Turkey international was reported to be a target for Jose Mourinho before signing for Barcelona but Cerezo says the 28-year-old had always the Blaugrana in mind after deciding to leave the club.

"We didn't talk with Chelsea, Barcelona was the first option," Cerezo told Spor Net-NTV.

"We got an agreement because of Luis Enrique's insistence."

The Liga champions have signed Turan from Atletico Madrid for an initial fee of £24m, a deal that could reach £29m with potential add-ons.
