Arda Turan may not be able to play yet for his new club Barcelona but he has been in great form for Turkey where the FIFA transfer ban prohibiting him of playing for the reigning La Liga champions does not apply.
Turan played a key role in the Crescent-Stars booking a place in the European Championships in France this summer and was at his best yesterday again in the international friendly against Qatar.
The bearded winger scored and provided an assist in the 2-1 win over Qatar in the Khalifah international stadium.
We took to Twitter to discover how Turan’s performance went down with Barcelona fans.
In general Barca fans were pretty impressed and many underlined that they cannot wait for him to make his debut for the club.
I see Arda Turan scored and assisted for Turkey. Great form with his national team, less than 8 weeks before seeing him play for Barça

Turan has yet to play for Barcelona but already has two goals and four assists for the Crescent Stars this season which is not bad for a player lacking match fitness.
