Official: Besiktas sign Adriano

Besiktas have completed the signing of full-back Adriano from Barcelona for an initial €600,000.

Adriano has put pen to paper on a three-year contract with Besiktas, who were crowned Turkish champions last season.

A statement on Barca’s official website adds the club will be entitled to a further €1.1m if BJK qualify for the Champions League group stage in that time, before wishing the player “good luck” on his new challenge.

The 31-year-old joined Barca from Sevilla in 2010 and made 189 appearances for the Catalans, but his playing time decreased substantially in his final two seasons.
