Regardless of the sound rumors saying that Atletico Madrid winger, Arda Turan, is about to depart from Vicente Calderon to a number of big clubs, it is surprising how the rumors have been curved rather convincingly. Some reports in Spain are quite sure that the player is going to eventually sign a deal offered from another Spanish football giant, Barcelona. Even though Arda Turan can be to some extent apt signing for Luis Enrique’s squad for the upcoming season, it is rather shaky if the man will fit nicely in Barcelona’s squad.
The enigma of placing Arda Turan in Barcelona’s squad is somewhat obvious. There are of course lots of great names stacked in Barca’s midfidler, say Andrea Iniesta, Ivan Rakitic, Xavi, and Pedro Rodriguez. With the fact that Barcelona has a pile of already-proven winners in their midfielder list, it is questionable whether Arda Turan will have his regular starting in Barca squad if he is indeed going to be signed. However, there is one fine line linking Atletico Madrid and Barcelona’s style, which can be a path toward him playing as regular. Under intensely demanding circumstance, Arda Turan has successfully managed to generate consistent top performance. There is no doubt that the player has one of the finest dribbling in Europe, he can excel at stumbling opponents in and then burst away in tight area by deploying his fantastic good close control so as to wriggle out of opponent’s pressure. Fire balls at Arda Turan at any weight or height, and he will surely kill them with excellence. In addition, setting such a player to stride forward can be really effective. There is a sense of Andreas Iniesta-like performance in his ability to escape from pressured situations in which the Spanish has just been outperformed.
It is certainly with one eye on Andreas Iniesta’s age that the club have turned their interest to Arda Turan. Andreas Iniesta is without a doubt at the end of his era as he is already 31 years old. The Camp Nou will surely have a great pleasure and interest in having another talented midfielder, even sooner than imagined as the number of years is getting shorter.After spending the last four seasons playing against Barcelona, Turan could assume the Barca midfidler’s position at Camp Nou in the near season. There is no doubt that the transfer can take place even sooner rather than later.
