The decision to sign Arda Turan was sanctioned by Barcelona President Josep Bartomeu and Neymar backs the decision.
The €41 million move could be annulled if another president wins the election and can veto the signing come July 20 and cost Barcelona €4.1 million.
Agusti Benedito has already confirmed that should he triumph, he will send Arda back to Atletico, claiming the deal was “an act of disloyalty”, while fellow candidate Joan Laporta admitted that he has yet to decide whether he would keep the 28-year-old winger.
Neymar has heaped praise on the Turkey international and named him a great player in the La Liga.
“Arda Turan is a great player,” the Brazil captain told SPORT. “He is one of the best there is in La Liga. He has great quality and will help us a lot.”
