Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu has claimed that French winger, Ousmane Dembele is a better than Neymar.
Neymar quit Catalan giants Barcelona for PSG in the summer of 2017 for a world-record transfer fee of €222m (£198m/$250m), with Dembele arriving from Dortmund for €105m (£90.6m/$118m) soon afterwards.
Bartomeu while speaking to TVE in Spain said “I explained that we have a project with Dembele and Coutinho with Neymar’s money”.
“Dembele’s level is better now than Neymar’s, he’s a much better player than Neymar and he’s already adapted.
“Coutinho is a great player, excellent, he’s getting better and better. It’s not easy to play at Barca – he was here six months last season and he’s complete now. He has the confidence of the coach. He’s a global player and we expect a lot. from him.
“He will continue at Barca. He’s different and Barca needs different players.”
