    Would you sell Neymar to buy Pogba?

    Assuming PSG is willing to pay the huge buy-out clause,we can use that money to buy Pogba and another 1-2 world class players.Would you accept that?

    Tell him, “Play with happiness. Play free. Just play with the ball.”

    Even when you are gone, the free style will live on in Barcelona through Messi."

    If they are going to trigger the buy-out there is nothing we can do as long as Neymar himself agrees to it.

    But I wouldn't trade Neymar for Pogba.

    We don't need midfielders, so no.

    Yeah,poor choice of words.Let's say that they are willing to pay one euro less than the clause,so that we are the ones to make the decision

    All day long. Love you Neymar, but we could get Pogba plus several other world-class players for that amount. Only problem is that I don't trust the board would buy the right players. Probably try to replace him with that biscuit Reus while overpaying at the same time.

    All that is in case Neymar wants to leave, in any other case, I would never want us to sell him. Like I already said, we can afford Pogba next summer without selling him.

    It's funny what half a season can do. Nerman was the best player in the world for the majority of the first half of last season, while Pogba had a slow start.
    Without ever having a chance to prove it, I bet the majority of the Barcaforum would've laughed at this "trade" around New year.

    No we couldn´t.How much do you think Juve would want for Pogba if they knew that we just got 190 M for Neymar.....

    IMO,it's either:

    Pogba and another 1-2 50M great players

    Or

    Four to five 40-50M players

    In other words,we cannot get "Pogba and several other world class players",unless a 20M signing counts as world-class

    It's not a direct trade though "Sell Ney,buy Pogba and that's it".It's Pogba and another 1-2 world-class signings or ,if you do not like Pogba, 4-5 other world class signings.We have an aging squad,and a few world-class signings could help us in the long term

    No team will pay that much for him, so they wouldn't be able to sell him at all then. But this is all theoretical to begin with, we can easily afford Pogba next summer without selling Neymar. This poll was just created because of the rumours saying he wants to leave in a season or two.

    No. We could afford Pogba next year without selling Nerman. Nerman is a future Ballon d'or, we can't let him go. He is irreplaceable imo..

    They keep saying Neymar is future Balon. After making the podium last year, he won't be among best 3 this time so who's to say he won't drop down further.
    There's a strong argument that he might have peaked already.

    Yeah, I know, hence why I wrote "trade". I still think the idea of selling a young, potentially world's best player is absurd, pretty much no matter the replacement(s). I mean, then we should probably also consider off-loading Messi and Suarez, as the money either of them would fetch, could strengthen our team vastly in other areas.


    It's nothing against the poll, just the notion of selling Neymar I don't get.

    Messi is a club legend,and still is better than Ney,and probably the best in the world,there is no point selling him.As for Suarez,he is more consistent and has showed a better work ethic these past two years.


    I mean,we can sell Ney and buy Pogba+Dybala+Laporte,maybe using some of the budget we already have.Add Umtiti,Denis Suarez and Nolito and we have an extremely strong squad for the next 4-5 years
