Barcelona star Arda Turan has stated that he cannot believe that he has joined the La Liga champions and that wants to becomes Europe’s best player.
The 28-year-old went onto state that he wants to win the UEFA Champions League with Barcelona.
“I could not have even dreamed of playing for Barcelona. However, God’s will has brought me here, and now I am dreaming for more,” Turan told Bugün daily.
“Now I want to become Europe’s best player and lift the Champions League Cup.”
The Turkish international joined Barcelona on a £24 million transfer from Atletico Madrid despite the Champions League title holders serving a FIFA transfer ban until January.
Turan will have plenty of time to settle in as he is unable to play any club football for the next four months and has even had time to go for a dip in his swimming pool with his clothes on.
The bearded winger will have to watch Barcelona’s opening Champions League group stage game from the comfort of his home as the transfer ban also applies to European football competitions.
