Arda Turan has had a lot of free time on his hand since joining Barcelona on a five-year deal from Atletico Madrid over the summer. The Turkish international has been unable to make a single appearance for the reigning La Liga champions due to the FIFA transfer ban imposed in the club.
Turan has however, managed to settle in well with his new teammates who he has been able to train with over the last few months and has gained a reputation as being one of the most eccentric members of the squad.
The bearded winger lived up to his reputation today playing a practical joke on Aleix Vidal – who also joined over the summer – during Barcelona training today.
Fellow teammates Dani Alves recently described Turan as being not only a phenomenon but a crazy one.
Turan and Vidal are both expected to finally make their debut next week on January 6 against rivals Espanyol in the Spanish Cup. Barcelona will be able to register both players when the transfer window opens in January.
