Lionel Messi and Neymar have always gotten along just fine since he joined from Santos in 2013. And it’s no surprise considering he had always said Messi was his idol.
For Neymar, playing along Messi is a rare privilege and he has always been willing to learn under the Argentinian. However, times are changing at the Camp Nou and Neymar is finally stepping up his influence in the team.
Messi has led Barcelona over the years, but last Sunday, even Messi was helpless against Deportivo. And it left fans massively feeling the absence of Neymar after his heroics against PSG.
Philippe Coutinho’s arrival could be trouble for Messi and Neymar
Spanish media Diario Gol have released a shocking report saying Messi and Neymar’s relationship could be strained if Philippe Coutinho arrives from Liverpool.
Coutinho is among the top priorities for Barcelona next summer. And Liverpool would be tempted with a big offer from Barcelona.
Coutinho and Neymar are good friends who have known each other since their younger days. And his arrival would go further to diminish Messi’s influence in the dressing room.
Leo turns 30-years-old in June, and is currently the vice-captain, behind Andres Iniesta. And his say on Barcelona’s transfer policies is always taken into consideration.
In addition, Messi is reportedly unsure over the pedigree of the Liverpool attacking midfielder.
The 29-year-old has netted 39 times this season and is on track to beat his last season’s 49 goals.
