Arda Turan, Barcelona star, has been handed a 32-month jail term after a row at nightclub row.
According to Mirror citing Turkish newspaper Haberturk Turan, the Barca ace was sentenced to two years and eight months behind bars for illegal possession of firearms.
After his sentence, the court opted to defer the verdict, meaning the midfielder would not head to the prison yet unless he is involved in a related incident in five years.
At the last count, Turan is on loan with Turkish Super Lig side Basaksehir, but was involved in a row with Turkish singer Berkay Sahin at an Istanbul nightclub late last year, leaving the musician with a bleeding nose.
The football star was alleged to have attacked the pop star in a fight over the singer's wife. Turan later arrived at the hospital with a gun which he fired at the ground, causing panic.
Turkish TV station uploaded a video clip showing outside the nightclub aftermath of the incident and Turan was sighted leaving the club.
The footage also shows Turan entering the hospital and in discussions with someone, before throwing an object down on the table.
Turkish newspaper Haberturk is claiming the pair clashed after Turan made provocative remarks to the singer's wife, Ozlem Ada Sahin.
Basaksehir are claiming a fine of 2.5m Turkish lira (£350,000) was handed to the 31-year-old for his role leading to the fight.
Turan completed a switch from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona for £30m in 2015, netting 15 times for the Catalan club, winning four trophies, as well as earning 55 appearances and winning four trophies.
