“Dembele is better than Neymar!”
The Camp Nou president was gotten some information about the club’s previous icon returning – yet he concentrated on the Brazilian’s substitution
Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has demanded “Ousmane Dembele is superior to Neymar” when gotten some information about the Brazilian whiz coming back to Camp Nou.
There has been hypothesis Neymar – who left Barcelona to join Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 – could play again for the Catalan monsters.
Be that as it may, Bartomeu wouldn’t address the issue when asked in a meeting on Spanish radio station Cadena SER, rather showering recognition on 21-year-old Dembele, who was purchased to supplant the one-time Camp Nou icon.
The Frenchman’s initial advancement following his €105 million (£90m/$199m) move from Borussia Dortmund was hampered by damage, with gossipy tidbits about the possibility of a Neymar return never far away.

Be that as it may, when gotten some information about Barca repurchasing Neymar, 27, Bartomeu stated, by means of Sport: “I won’t state yes or no. I state that, with their cash, Barca made a brandishing wager.
“With that cash, we went for players like Dembele and [Philippe] Coutinho. Dembele is superior to Neymar. He’s at Barca and he is better.”
Neymar as of late talked down the likelihood of playing for Barcelona for a second time, telling Brazil’s Globo TV by means of Sport: “I effectively cultivated my fantasy and everybody realizes that was to play at Barcelona, my fantasy since I was little and I did it, so I feel an entire individual.”
What’s more, he would not preclude the possibility of one day joining Barca’s severe opponents Real Madrid.
He included: “Energy to play at Madrid? They are a standout amongst the best clubs on the planet, any player Madrid needed would be pulled in to play there. I feel glad in Paris, great here, yet no one recognizes what could occur later on.
