Former FC Barcelona captain Andrés Iniesta has given his opinion on the prospective signing of Neymar, in an interview with DAZN. The current Vissel Kobe midfielder spoke about whether the Brazilian was a good signing, taking into account that Barça already spent heavily on reinforcing the forward line by the capture of Antoine Griezmann.

“They are two of the best in the world individually, and they would be amazing signings, but it’s another question if the two are necessary, or how the team would gel, or what Barça really want,” he said.

Iniesta also spoke about Eden Hazard: “He’s a player who makes a difference. He’s extremely complete: right, left, dribbling, speed, he’s strong... he has brutal quality to be an important player for Real Madrid, and I always liked him.”

And here’s what he said about his future: “At the personal level, surely I will try to be a coach, develop, and let’s see what happens in the future. But as of today, I have a hard time visualizing it, because I still feel enthusiasm to continue playing football.”
