Turan will not however, be able to don his new shirt in a competitive game until January due to the transfer ban imposed on the club by FIFA. The FIFA ban means Barcelona cannot register Turan until January despite signing him on a five-year deal for £24 million from Atletico Madrid last month.

FIFA recently rejected Barcelona’s request to register Arda Turan in place of the injured Rafinha according to the Spanish newspaper Marca.

The 26-year-old is busy preparing for the Turkish national teams key Euro 2016 Group A qualification games against the Czech Republic and Iceland which will determine whether the Crescent-Stars make it to the play-offs or not.
