The president of Barca Bartomeu has explained why the Brazilian superstar Neymar’s move to the Paris Saint Germain side can be a positive deal for the Spanish giants.
According to the Barcelona president, the world record deal for the Neymar presented the Barca side the chance to return to their tradition,
This season the Catalan side Barcelona has broken their own club record to bring the French youngster Ousmane Dembele from the Borussia Dortmund,
To bring the Young defender from the Dortmund side the Catalan side has paid a €105m fee to the German giants.
This season the Barca side tried to sign the Liverpool star Coutinho but it proved fruitless and after that, they were ready to bring the Argentine superstar Di Maria to the Nou Camp as well but they could manage to finalize the deal.
Now the MSN trident has broken up but still, the Barca President believes that Barcelona can reach the heights.
He added: "It's better to have the talent at the club,"
"But you can't be too pessimistic. It's an opportunity for Barcelona to break the trident and to bet oncollective play.
"We're coming off Luis Enrique's project and now there's [head coach Ernesto] Valverde. There's total confidence in him. He's a boss that believes in the Barca model and in players from La Masia.
"[It's an opportunity] to end the strength of the trident. It's been really good but it's had consequences. It's an opportunity to play a return to collective football in midfield, which is traditionally Barca's strength.
"His exit allows us to strengthen the model, to not fall back on the trident all the time. Plus, we've got money. We've earned €105m and there's more to invest in football, in assets... Let's see what we do.
"It's an opportunity, with a new manager, a new project. We can't be pessimists. Let's stop being pessimistic!
"Internally there's no pessimism. People think Neymar's exit weakens the team. The opposite. We have to take advantage of this opportunity to strengthen the team."
