Did you taste it? Is it water or coolant?

Default Leak near turbo

Looks like exhaust mist, condensation, may be a cracked pipe.

Looks like water, but it smells like oil is burning

Probably because that cv axle boot is also ripped.

Could it be clutch or brake fluid?

I don't know how its getting there, but it doesn't look like oil or coolant.

Clutch maybe. Master cylinder is on the other side of the car and the brake lines run lower than that dont they?

Check turbo coolant and oil returns, both at the turbo and at the motor.

Get the car up, get underneath the turbo, look up. Should be fairly evident what the highest wet point is.
