Savi Marquez at Total Barca:
To answer this question, we first have to look at the current circumstances, those in which Arda will start to play his football in Barcelona; that is if he makes the move, given the unprecedented clause included in the agreement with Atlético. Number one, Barcelona is a team that is coming off the back of a historic treble win, with its coaches having worked hard to find a winning formula and polish it to perfection. Number two, with Xavi Hernández’s departure, Barcelona have lost a midfield metronome, a player with an uncanny ability to take over proceedings in midfield singlehandedly. And number three, because of the FIFA ban, Arda Turan will have to wait until January 2016 to play for his new club.
