There is no doubting that Neymar will be a massive upgrade for Barcelona’s offense. But is he actually the answer? I would argue that he is, but only partially.
I would not claim that Neymar alone is the answer. Instead, a player possessing Neymar’s ability is the answer. Players such as Sergio Aguero who can provide the same if bought could be the answer as well.
So there are actually several forwards who could be brought to the Camp Nou and provide what the club is looking for.
But there is no denying that Sandro Rosell has his eyes set on the Brazilian starlet.
No one can truly predict how Neymar will fare in a move to Europe. He will have immense pressure on his shoulders, but do not expect a flop.
At a club like Barcelona, he will be nurtured and not forced to carry the team. With all the factors that will be in play, fans should expect the very best from Neymar.
Should the Brazilian truly show his best in Europe, he will answer all of Barcelona’s needs offensively without question. But until that happens, there is not a guarantee yet.
But if you are asking my opinion, I believe Neymar is a necessity for Barcelona along with a new center-back. The Brazilian will pair up brilliantly with Messi, and the inability to score will be a thing of the past for the Catalans.
What will Neymar bring to Barcelona? Is the Brazilian a necessity for Tito Vilanova’s club? Leave your thoughts and comments below.
