Barcelona presidential candidate Josep Maria Bartomeu gives permission to sign Arda Turan.

Barcelona presidential candidate Josep Maria Bartomeu has given his blessing for the club's interim management to sign Atletico Madrid's wantaway midfielder Arda Turan.
Catalan-based sports newspaper El Mundo Deportivo reported last week that Barca's interim management had decided to postpone the signing of the player until the club's presidential elections are held on July 18.
The 28-year-old is also wanted by English Premier League clubs, however, and a delay could see the Catalan team miss out on a player deemed to be Barca coach Luis Enrique's primary target this summer.
Bartomeu, who stepped down as president last month in order for the election campaign to begin, said to El Mundo Deportivo: "(Barca coach) Luis Enrique has won everyone's confidence and he deserved that they listen to him in signing Arda Turan, who is a great player. I tell the interim management as a candidate to the presidency that I have no problem if Arda Turan is signed as requested by Luis Enrique."
