Lionel Messi makes incredible Neymar claim… you won’t believe what he said

LIONEL MESSI reckons Barcelona are a much more balanced side without Neymar

Barcelona parted company with Neymar last summer as he joined Paris Saint-Germain for an eye-watering fee of £200million.

Despite his indifferences with Edinson Cavani, the Brazilian has been in electrifying form, netting 27 goals in all competitions.

Messi, meanwhile, has helped the Catalan giants forge a huge lead at the top of the La Liga table and they are still in contention to win the Champions League and Copa del Rey too.

Neymar was an integral part of the lethal attack alongside Messi and Luis Suarez during his spell at the Nou Camp.

Although some wondered how the La Liga powerhouse would cope without Neymar, Messi thinks they have gone from strength to strength.

“Without Neymar we are more balanced,” Messi told the Daily Mirror.

“His departure led to a change in the way we play.

“We have lost a lot of our offensive potential but we have improved in defence.

“We have more balance and this allows us to be more solid.”

Reports have suggested that Neymar and Messi have been exchanging regular messages about Real Madrid.

Neymar has been linked with a move to the Bernabeu, with Cristiano Ronaldo struggling to reach the usual lofty standards he sets himself.
