Real Madrid offered Santos more money but the Brazil international, 21, has chosen to jump the Sao Paulo ship to join Camp Nou on a five-year deal
Well its been confirmed now by him, he will join barca. Madrid need to answer.
I dont know why I dont think he will be all that great just like Robinho everybody thought he was the new Pele and look how that ended up.
i think if he has the discipline of messi, CR7, Zidane, Ronaldinho he could be just as good. if he has the attitude of "i know it all, i am the best" like a certain mario balotelli then he can forget it. Robinho he will become. i say we give him the benefit and let him prove he got the character to become one of the worlds best.
Barcelona lose 7-0 to Bayern........buys new attacker. Hmm. Ok they had defensive injuries but still. I think it is obvious their defence needs serious attention. They desperately need a new world class centre back. Mascherano can do a job there but the fact is, he just isn't a centre back and never was. Puyol is past his best and Pique heavily relies on him being in the side to perform, Abidal has struggled for fitness and will probably never be the same player again. He is nearly 34 as well. Adriano isn't remotely good enough, Bartra has no experience. Barcelona need someone like Hummels. That's it really.
did you see hummels yeasterday? he was awful.
He wasn't that bad. Judge him on one game :-(
They also need another GK
messi and neymar next season should be interesting. now madrid have to counter and make a signing which is just as good, gareth bale i think.
the last thing Barcelona needed was another attacker. Strange decision. I thought they would have tightened their defense.
this just seems like another Alexis Sanchez who was ripping apart Seria A at the time. their problem is lack of actual defenders as lets face it Pique is the only decent CB in that side now and even then he can be extremely clumsy. the thing Neymar will have to learn quick is Messi is the main man and will be aslong as hes there which i think somebody with as big of a ego as Neymar wont like.
Time to prove yourself, Neymar
Time to prove the negative comments right, Neymar. Not a fan of over arrogant average players.
An arrogant actor is not what Barça needs at all.
I think he has potential, one that will be unlocked in Europe, so now we'll see how great he can really be. Hopefully Barca sign that much needed CB, Puyols is done, and we can't hold off and wait for a youngster to step up in so little time. Not to mention, they need a goalkeeper. Hopefully Tello still gets some playing time down that left wing.
