Why Messi Is Angry At Neymar
Neymar is currently thriving in France after leaving Barcelona in a £200million deal back in August.
The Brazil international, however, is not being missed over at the Nou Camp with Ernesto Valverde’s side sitting comfortably at the top of the La Liga table.
But Spanish website Diario Gol says that Lionel Messi is still reeling from the player’s decision to end his time in Catalonia.
It is said that the Argentina international had a close relationship with Neymar – both on and off the field.
Together, the duo helped Barcelona win La Liga twice in four years.
And they also combined to fire the club to Champions League glory under former boss Luis Enrique in 2015.
Messi supposedly feels lonely without his close friend.
And he also thinks Barcelona’s attack is weaker without him, despite the club splashing £96m on Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele.
Diario Gol also claim that Messi has two huge signings in mind to help Barcelona recover from the loss of the 25-year-old.
He supposedly has spoken to Valverde and club president Josep Maria Bartomeu about deals for Philippe Coutinho and Antoine Griezmann.
Barcelona tried repeatedly to sign Coutinho from Liverpool but were unable to convince the Reds to let the playmaker go.
Griezmann, meanwhile, is on their radar after seeing a move to Manchester United collapse in the summer.
The France international is struggling at Atletico Madrid and, consequently, a parting of the ways could be in the offing.
