21-year old Brazilian football star Neymar has been linked to many teams this season, but none more than the Blaugrana. And ex-Atletico Madrid great Juninho believes that’s the exact transaction that needs to take place.
Juninho spoke with Onda Cero pointing to recent Champions League failures as another reason Barca needs to make a move. Even though there could be a bit of a transition from Brazil to Spain, he believes it would work.
“Everyone’s saying that Neymar will leave in the middle of the year, and Barcelona have been mentioned [as his new club] all along,” he said. “I do believe Neymar needs European experience. He will need to adapt at first because Brazilian football is a little different.
“From what I know, he might go to Barcelona, it’s what everyone has been saying in Brazil since forever. Barcelona don’t have the unity they had a few years ago, they need to bring in reinforcements.
“I think he [Neymar] would enjoy Barcelona more because of their playing style. He would fit better there.” Neymar still has a year remaining on his contract with Santos.
