The departure of Neymar may have rocked many a Barcelona fan and even some players but Lionel Messi is still unfazed by it all.
Ahead of Barcelona’s massive double-bill clash against Real Madrid in the Spanish Super Cup, Messi enjoyed some quality time with his wife Antonella Roccuzzo, poolside in Catalonia.
Messi was instrumental when Barcelona last beat Real Madrid in the Spanish league. He even scored in their pre-season friendly win over the Spanish champions in America in what was Neymar’s final game for Barcelona.
Barcelona is reportedly in talks with Liverpool over the signing of Brazilian Philippe Coutinho to replace Neymar, who sealed a world record move to Paris Saint- Germain in the first week of August
If Barcelona sign Coutinho and Dembele for ~$240 million as replacements for $260 million Neymar, that's great business. #SillySeason— Stuart Holden (@stuholden) August 8, 2017
There has also been chatter about a bid for Ousmane Dembele from Borussia Dortmund but the German outfit have insisted that he is not for sale.
