The moment was left in the mist. Among all those perproposites that marked the era of Josep Maria Bartomeu in Barcelona. The former Burgra President was at a plethoric moment. After his period of interim in office after the resignation of Sandro Rosell, Bartomeu devastated Joan Armporta in the 2015 elections. He passed the campaign showing a cardboard ceiling with the motto: "We have a triplet, we have trident." The team then trained by Luis Enrique and Leo Messi, Neymar and Luis Suárez at the offensive tip, had just conquered the triple crown, reigning at Berlin's Champions.
Even with the triumphal surf, and despite the fact that the former Javier Faus director had agreed a renewal agreement for Qatar Airways to continue promoting the shirt for something more than 60 million euros, Bartomeu could greed. In October 2015 he was planted in Doha next to the then Vice President Manel Arroyo. Both pretended that the Emirate will pay more than previously agreed. They were not even received and they had to return to Barcelona without any agreement and with the feeling that it would bring consequences. A few months later, the agreement would arrive with Rakuten.
The disputes between both entities began to be fierce. If perhaps, the only time Barcelona was victorious was that night of 6-1 in the Champions that nothing served. Then, Neymar was the one who commanded the comeback and Messi, elevated as a Messiah before the Camp Nou, who starred an iconic photograph. Both are now standards of the Paris Club.
Barcelona touched with a wall in his attempts to sign Marquinhos, Verratti, "ordered even to change from representative by PSG-, Rabot or Di Maria, who came to have an agreement agreed with Barcelona. Although nothing like the signing of Neymar in the summer of 2017. The Parisian Club paid his clause of 222 million euros, and Barcelona, before undertaking the two most expensive signings in his story (Coutinho and Delmbééé) accused him of inflating the Bubble market with money from a state.
Two years ago, Bartomeu said dreaming of recovering Neymar. The PSG never allowed it. If the Brazilian was going to meet with Messi it would be only in Paris.Updated Date: 11 August 2021, 12:45
