Arda Turan and Fatih Terim appeared to have repaired their tense relationship before a recent Galatasaray and Basaksehir match with the player kissing the coach's hand as a mark of respect and healing the wounds between both men open since Euro 2016.

Arda's current deal with Barcelona finally expires at the conclusion of the current campaign as the player features less and less for the Istanbul based side. Galatasaray are looking for a central midfielder after a disappointing season from Belhanda with the Cim Bom central area also badly hit by injury and it's not expected that the Catalan side would demand a high fee for the move.

If Arda does make a Galatasaray return he would link up once against with Radamel Falcao with both players representing Atlético Madrid from 2012-2014.
