'Barcelona Better Without Temperamental Neymar' Says del Bosque

'Barcelona Better Without Temperamental Neymar' Says del Bosque

From the point of view of FC Barcelona, the Brazilian national player did not stick to the then-made agreements.

The decision to cough up and move on comes just a week after Neymar left Barcelona to join PSG for a world record fee of 222 million Euros ($261 million).

Spanish publication Sport claim that Di Maria is just one of a number of potential targets for the Catalan club as they desperately try to replace Neymar, who is now one of Di Maria's team mates at Paris Saint-Germain. "And now it simply happened".

"I don't even know if this is right", he continued.

Barcelona and La Liga have both threatened PSG with Financial Fair Play rules and it's been suggested that new controls may be instated in the transfer market.

However, del Bosque, who coached Spain to two European Championships and a World Cup triumph using the fulcrum of the Barca team, thinks they are better off without Neymar due to the player's temperament. A simple solution would be a rule. "Where we want to go and where this should stop", Klopp added. €150m or €550m or whatever, and then no one would complain anymore.

If there's any player out there worthy of the cost, many would argue Messi to be him, and Klopp could be proved correct in asserting his €300 million cost no longer looks so far out of reach.

PSG's capture of Neymar is meant to turn the Ligue 1 side, who finished second behind Monaco in Ligue 1 last season, into genuine contenders to win the Champions League, but Klopp stressed there is more to the sport than signing star players. A star player on one side and another one on the other makes the player in the middle a star too.
