Although there is the figure of Cristiano Ronaldo, but former Barcelona President Sandro Rosell considers Neymar as the second world best player after Lionel Messi. He would not even hesitate to recruit the Brazilian star if he returned to serve as Barca coach.
Barcelona is believed to be aiming for some newer players in their efforts to regenerate the squad. Naturally, at this time the Catalan Giant had several players who had entered old age.
Call it there is Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi who are 33 years old, as well as other players like 31-year-old defender Gerard Pique and midfielder Sergio Busquets.
Messi himself is still showing a very good performance, only the problem is the fact that the new Argentine mega star contract is still incomplete.
Problem Neymar, in the last two years Barcelona is often associated with the Brazilian National Team players. They also tried to send him back to Camp Nou in the summer of 2019 yesterday, but failed.
Even so, Sandro Rosell assesses Barcelona must continue their efforts, because according to him the 28-year-old player is the only ideal successor for Messi.
“If I were the president of Barcelona, I would try to bring Neymar. “He is the second best player in the world after Messi and fits very well with the club’s philosophy,” Rosell told COPE and Radio Marca.
Behind his impressive performance, Sandro Rosell underlined Neymar’s behavior outside the field which he said still needed to be disciplined.
“But based on experience, we have to sign it with two contracts, one for sports and his attitude off the field,” Sandro Rosell said.
Barcelona itself is also associated with several other quality young players, including the Argentine striker, Lautaro Martinez. In this regard, Sandro Rosell seems to disagree with the 22-year-old star recruitment discourse because his grades are too high.
“I will not buy Lautaro Martinez for 111 million Euros, but I will try to swap two players,” Sandro Rosell said.
Lautaro Martinez performed brilliantly with Inter Milan, packing 16 goals this season.
