Valverde: Barcelona’s Past Neymar
Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde, was not willing to discuss the issue of Neymar move. He admitted just want to focus on making his team become champions next season.
Neymar moved to PSG after breaking the record transfer. He was bought with 222 million euros.
In fact, Neymar has been a key player of Barcelona. Together with Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, Neymar is a trident on the front lines of the Blaugrana.
“I’m not interested in seeing the past, Neymar is a great player for Barcelona, but he’s not here anymore,” Valverde said as quoted by Soccerway.
“We have to look ahead and see what we have, the problem now is we have to win the game with the existing squad.”
Until now Barcelona have not received a replacement for Neymar. A number of names are targeted, such as Marco Verratti, Dele Alli, to Ousmane Dembele.
“I know management is also moving in the transfer market, but I am focused on improving the existing team,” said Valverde, who recently served as Barcelona coach.
