“Bartomeu could have signed Arda before stepping down. The urgency to do so now is out of place and this is an attempt to create an advantage for the candidacy of Bartomeu, Rosell and Co. There’s a lack of transparency, they are demented in how they managed this signing, just like in the case of Neymar… They want to use Arda to hide the way they made fools out of themselves with Pogba. Barça is strong enough to get the player to wait for the new president and our relationship with Atletico Madrid is good enough to make this happen.” Jan Laporta
