It’s gotta feel good to be Arda Turan right now, sure, you are not going to be able to play for your new club, Barcelona, until January, but once you do you will get to be a part of stuff like this:
It’s a footballer’s wet dream, and Turan about to bathe in — OK, sorry, I got a little carried away there.
But in all honesty his move to Barcelona is a dream come through. And for all of you who think that he’s just a glory hunter, or a traitor, check out this tweet from 2011.
Arda Turan (Galatasaray): "I have big dreams. Maybe the people will laugh at it, but I dream to play at Barcelonaa one day." [ntv]— barcastuff (@barcastuff) April 22, 2011
The made his dream come true when he swapped Atletico Madrid for Barcelona, nothing less.
I can’t remember the last time I saw such a clear realization of ambition. Do you remember what you wanted to do four years ago? Have you achieved it? Consider yourself lucky if you have, because few people have the self-awareness to truly know where they want to be in the future, or the dedication to persevere until they get their. Clearly, Turan has both, and now he will get to make sweet, sweet soccer with the best team in the world.
