“Sampiyon, Adana Demirspor”. With this short slogan, Turkish Adana Demirspor still celebrates their promotion to the First Division. The club founded in 1940 as a sports center is not among the most successful or in football in its country, the only section that already occupies it, but it is attracting attention in this transfer market.
After more than 20 years out of the Superliga, the Adana Demirspor closed her promotion last May and is strengthening herself with everything she can to try to stay in the highest category of Bosphorus football.
The first surprise in the market was given by closing the hiring of Mario Balotelli. The Italian forward announced his arrival in Turkey on July 7 after a season in Serie B with Berlusconi's Monza. The forward was barely able to play 14 games all season and is going for his umpteenth attempt at redemption in this newly promoted. Whether your performance is good or not will show. Meanwhile, he will have a star salary with three million per season.
Now, Adana want to surprise with a new move from another elite European football star who is far from his prime: David Luiz. The Arsenal center-back is already negotiating with the club as confirmed by its president to the local press. “The discussions with David Luiz continue. I hope we can finalize it. When the commissions are high, you have to negotiate a bit,” he told reporters.
Belhanda, the third star
With less name than Balotelli or David Luiz but with a proven performance, another of the surprising signings has been Belhanda. The Avignon player was without a team since March after leaving Galatasaray and will return in the same division to try to get his best level.
