Arda Turan has not really done a lot to earn a winter holiday considering he has yet to make a debut for Barcelona but he has been granted one anyway.
Turan has spent the last few days in Turkey opening his new restaurant Arşiv but also took time out to meet friends and show off his two dogs.
The bearded winger took to Instagram to show off two Golden Retriever dogs.
Turan played a key role in Turkey reaching the European Championships. In fact the Crescent Stars are unbeaten in the last 10 games in which the winger has played.
The 28-year-old has however, yet to play for Barcelona due to the reigning Champions League title holders being unable to register new players due to the FIFA transfer ban.
The good news for Turan is that the ban will be lifted in January and the club should be able to make push through his registration in time for the derby against Espanyol.
