Arda has a Messi shirt and pictures with the Argentinian star
One of the things to consider when a player signs for Barcelona is that he will be able to play with Leo Messi. That's what Luis Suarez, Neymar or Rakitic said in their first press conferences as Barcelona players.
With Arda Turan's signing the story may repeat again. The Turkish midfielder admires Leo Messi as he confessed in an interview with GQ: "If we speak about football fiction, I would have liked to play in Guardiola's Barcelona. Give assists to Leo Messi would have been great". Now the dream will come true.
In this picture we can see Arda Turan, a friend of him and a Leo Messi shirt. Below there's a couple of pictures where the two players were involved in the same match between Barcelona and Atletico Madrid.
After a match against Barcelona, Arda Turan said: "Messi is not from this world. He's from another. For me he's the best player of all-time".
