Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for discussion today is related to Neymar’s return to FC Barcelona. It is true that Neymar’s return to Camp Nou seems nearly impossible. However, we are going to discuss, “WHAT CAN NEYMAR BRING TO THIS FC BARCELONA TEAM?”
It’s been a few years since Neymar moved to PSG. However, the fans still remember it as if it happened yesterday. Things have never been the same at the Camp Nou after Ney departed from the club. It is also fair enough to say that FC Barcelona would be in a better position if Neymar was still playing for the club. Pep Guardiola also once said that FC Barcelona could have won 2-3 more Champions League titles if they had kept Ney at the club.
WHAT CAN NEYMAR BRING TO THIS FC BARCELONA TEAM?
MESSI IS GOING TO STAY AT THE CLUB
Neymar’s return to the club can actually mean that Lionel Messi decides to retire from his boyhood club. We all know that many clubs are trying to bring Messi to their club, and Manchester City is leading the race. We also know the reasons that are leading to the departure of Lionel Messi. However, if Neymar comes back, there is a chance that Lionel decides to stay. The reason is that FC Barcelona is going to go at another level just with the addition of Neymar in its squad.
Neymar has a lot to offer to the club. Plus, he is also one of the closest people to Lionel Messi. Both of them had an amazing time at the club both on and off the pitch. Therefore, his return can convince Messi to not leave the club. Not only Messi is going to reunite with one of his best friends, but Neymar is also going to make FC Barcelona very strong.
It is without any doubt that FC Barcelona’s incompetence in the Champions League is going to be one of the reasons that Messi might leave the club. However, Neymar’s presence in the squad means that Barca is going to be way more strong than it is right now. This can be another reason to convince Messi to not leave FC Barcelona.
LESS DEPENDENCE ON LIONEL MESSI
Neymar can divide the leadership role at the club. Currently, every player and all of the fans look up to Lionel Messi to win them games or get them out of trouble. Ever since Neymar and Andres Iniesta left the club, Messi is dealing with all the pressure.
Being the best player in the world surely feels good, but it comes with its consequences. There are no world-class creators at the club besides Lionel Messi. The club tried to put an end to all the problems in the midfield by using Ivan Raktic more often and even by bringing in Arturo Vidal. However, that did not help much.
Although Pedri, Puig, and Frenkie De Jong look very promising, they can still not take the leadership role. However, this does not apply to Neymar. Ney can share all the responsibilities with Lionel Messi right from day one, and the players are going to follow him without any doubt.
Furthermore, Neymar is an amazing world-class player. Therefore, we do not have to worry if Neymar is the right guy to share the leadership role with Lionel Messi or not?
Neymar’s arrival at the Camp Nou is going to cost a lot of cash, but it is also going to ensure a lot of cash coming in as well. If Neymar actually returns, this news is going to break the internet, the media, and the footballing world in general.
Let’s just think of all the business Laporta is going to do if Neymar actually comes. Neymar’s shirts are going to sell like crazy. Furthermore, the tickets for the games are also going to be bought a lot just to see Messi and Neymar playing again. This is going to bring in enormous funds that can help improve the financial situation at Camp Nou. Laporta is also likely to get rid of many existing players who are not of much use at the moment.
This is not only going to bring in money, but this is also going to help the club get enough funds to bring in Neymar. Therefore, Neymar’s arrival is a win-win situation for everyone at FC Barcelona. The only question that remains is if Neymar himself wants to come to Camp Nou or not?
