Arda Turan joined Barcelona this week and he'll have to wait until January to begin playing with the club.

Turan could be loaned to Galatasaray or Fenerbahce during the first part of the season.

“It’s going to be hard not playing for six months but the important thing is that I will play for Barça,” Turan said in an interview with Spanish radio on Tuesday.

“I will work until I am able to make my debut in January and I will help the team to win all the trophies,” he said, adding that it will be a “dream” for him to play in the same team as Lionel Messi, Neymar and Andrés Iniesta.
