Bartomeu: Enrique deserves Arda

Josep Maria Bartomeu says Luis Enrique “deserves” the signing of Arda Turan as Barcelona’s interim board prepare to make a decision on the Atletico Madrid star.

Reports in the Spanish Press claim the commission headed by Ramon Adell will decide whether to sanction the midfielder’s arrival on Monday, and the presidential candidate is keen for the transfer to go through.

“Luis Enrique has earned the faith of everyone at the club and deserves the signing of Arda,” he told reporters, as per Marca.

“I don’t have a problem with the interim board signing Arda. He’s a request of the Coach.

“I’m happy with the signatures that I’ve received. We have more than others so it shows that we’ve done well.”
