The report claims that Turan’s father is a huge fan of Johan Cruyff and that the bearded winger wants to honour his father by wearing the same shirt number the Barcelona legend wore as a player.
The Barcelona winger initially wore the number 22 shirt at Galatasaray to represent the postal code of the city his family originate from – Edirne.
Turan has wore the number 22, 66, 10, 14 and 11 on his shirt in the past for previous teams.
The Turkish international recently completed his £24 million transfer from Atletico Madrid to Barcelona but will be unable to play until January due to the transfer ban imposed on the club by FIFA.
Turan signed a five-year deal with the La Liga champions reported to be worth £6 million per-season.
