Barcelona transfer news LIVE: Express Sport brings you the latest updates coming out of the Nou Camp (Image: GETTY)Louis van Gaal on Lionel MessiFormer Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has taken aim at ‘individual’ Lionel Messi for Barcelona’s recent Champions League failures.“I believe that there is nothing more important than the team player,” Van Gaal told El Pais. “Barca suffer from that.“I think Messi should ask himself how it is possible that he’s gone so long without winning a Champions League.“Look at Barcelona. How many Champions Leagues have they won with the one everybody says is the best player in the world? Look at Neymar at PSG. How many Champions Leagues has he won?“He’s the best individual player in the world because his stats are amazing. But why hasn’t he won a Champions League for five years?“As captain, you have to ask yourself why the team doesn’t win in Europe. I think that Messi is also responsible for what is happening at Barcelona, not just the coach.“They have a squad of 30 players and I believe that Messi should adapt himself to the team, and not the other way around.”[QUIZ] ❌✅⁉️Answer the questions and we’ll tell you if you have a #Messi hidden inside you! ������— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) June 24, 2019Paul Pogba/Neymar swap proposalParis Saint-Germain have contacted Manchester United about an audacious swap deal.That’s according to the Independent, who claim PSG have spoken to Ed Woodward about directly swapping Neymar for Paul Pogba.Both players are unhappy in their current situations with Pogba admitting a new challenge would be tempting while Neymar wants to leave the Ligue 1 champions.The Independent claim PSG have tried to remedy the situation and have held discussions with United about a potential exchange.However, Woodward is supposedly against the deal for two reasons.The first is Neymar’s current £900,000-a-week wages, and the second is that the Manchester United executive vice-chairman wants to keep Pogba at Old Trafford.Neymar has been heavily linked with a summer return to Barcelona and United’s snub could open the door to that happening.
