TV3 reporter praises Bartomeu for blocking Neymar's move to Real Madrid
- In his opinion, Bartomeu hasn't completely damaged Barca's image.
- Instead, he isolated Neymar from Barca's biggest rivals.
After Neymar saga has finally come to an end, sports journalists all around the world share their views on the outcome.
Here's what Louis Canute (TV3) tells to defend Bartomeu's gruelling negotiation process.
"They say that Bartomeu damaged Barca's image by trying to bring Neymar back...Well tell me, how would it be if Neymar ended in Madrid? He also blocked that possibility..."
It's supposed that Barcelona have chosen the right timing to eliminate the Blancos from the run. Before that, Real Madrid's president Florentino Perez was seriously determined to land the Brazilian and offer two players, one of which was Keylor Navas who actually moved to PSG a few days ago.
However, Bartomeu didn't manage to accomplish the deal as expected due to the Parisians' high financial demands. After that, a group of Barca players has allegedly been furious at the club's president. One of the most frustrated persons within the group is supposedly Leo Messi who desperately tried to ignore Bartomeu at a recent UEFA event.
