‘Ousmane Dembele better than Neymar’ – Barcelona president

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has claimed the club’s forward Ousmane Dembele is a better player than Neymar.

The Frenchman arrived from Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017 following Neymar’s world record €222m transfer to Paris Saint-Germain from the Camp Nou.

“Is a Neymar return possible? I cannot confirm or deny this,” Bartomeu told Cataluna Ser radio.

“We received a lot of money for Neymar and we invested it in our future planning, you can see that with our signings such as Dembele and (Philippe) Coutinho.

“In my opinion, Dembele is a better player than Neymar, he is the player at our club and we are very happy that he is here.”
