Since then, the Catalan giants have been on pursuit for a suitable replacement and Zidane admits that their close rivals will only become stronger with whoever comes into the squad. Liverpool’s Philippe Coutinho and Paris Saint-Germain’s Angel di Maria are some of the names propping up the Barcelona shortlist, and Zidane still insists that there is nobody like Neymar.
