Chelsea target Arda Turan not right man for Barcelona says Abidal

Atletico Madrid star Arda Turan would not struggle to fit in at Barcelona according to former Cules midfielder Abidal.

The ex France international stated that he has a lot of respect for Turan as a player but just does not see where he would fit in with the current setup.

“Arda is a good player, important for his team, but I don’t know if he would adapt,” he was quoted as saying by Goal.

Barcelona have also been heavily linked with Turan throughout the summer but Abidal does not believe he would fit the Barcelona philosophy.
