Amidst speculation that Neymar could join Barcelona, Lionel Messi has given his public endorsement saying that he would in fact welcome the addition of the Brazilian.
“For us he would be a marvelous addition,” Messi said. “He is the type of player who offers individual solutions different from the rest. He is a great player, who is very good in one-on-ones with opponents.”
Can you imagine Messi and Neymar on the same team? Unreal.
It was a great move by Messi to clear the air before a potential arrival as we’ve seen what can happen when things get awkward between teammates.
