After having cost almost £ 50 million, a player like Neymar with his supreme talent will consider himself as one of the best players at the club even as large as Barcelona.
However, the Brazil superstar has surprisingly omitted that Lionel Messi is the supreme power at the club and he has no shame in admitting this fact. Neymar also has no problem in playing second fiddle to Lionel Messi since he feels that the Argentine is the best in the world by a long distance. Neymar’s future at Barcelona has been speculated a lot in recent weeks.
The club are reportedly ready to cash in on the player, who has only two years left on his contract. There have been signs of unrest from within Neymar’s camp and Barcelona would want to receive as much as transfer fee possible for their star asset rather than let him leave on a free. After having been in and out of the national team in the last year, Neymar is hoping to help his Brazil national team win the Olympic tournament, which will be held on home soil this time around. The 24-year-old, though, will be the primary weapon for the Brazil national team and he will probably carry them around.
“I’ve never liked talking about myself, but I’ll give Barcelona’s example. We have great players but will we deny we are dependent on Messi? Of course we depend [on Messi].I’m not ashamed of playing for him or for the fact that he is the man. Messi is the best in the world, I want to depend on him. Winning is a very good thing. The pressure is part of the football, I’m here for that. It’s part of the game this pressure when I’m on the field,” said Neymar ahead of the Olympics.
