Bayern Munich are attentive to the situation of Turkish winger Arda Turan, according to Spanish daily El Mundo Deportivo.

Turan is keen to leave the Vicente Calderon for a new challenge at the end of the season, despite Atletico Madrid’s impressive season so far.

The Turkey international will not be short of options, with the likes of Arsenal and Chelsea having been linked with making a move for him.

A switch to Bayern Munich could be another option however, and in Germany Turan would link up with a coach who knows his talents well from La Liga.


Former Barcelona boss Pep Guardiola has been appointed to take over at the Allianz Arena from next season and were Turan to sign for the Bavarians, he would play under the Catalan tactician.

Atletico Madrid have not given up hope of keeping Turan beyond the summer however, and Champions League football next season may help.

The 25-year-old’s contract at the Spanish giants runs until 2015. He joined the club in the summer of 2011.
