‘Neymar can fill Messi’s boots at Barcelona’ – Brazilian billed by Mateu as ‘one of the best in the world’

The former La Masia academy graduate admits he would prefer to see Kylian Mbappe at Camp Nou, but believes a returning star could also shine

Neymar is capable of filling Lionel Messi’s boots at Barcelona when the day comes for a six-time Ballon d’Or winner to walk away from Camp Nou, says Jofre Mateu.

Such a move will not be made any time soon, with an exit clause that exists in the Argentine’s contract having expired for 2020.

A mercurial talent is, however, only tied to terms with the Blaugrana for another 12 months and is yet to commit to an extension beyond that point.
