"We were creating an important brand, La Masia, and now it's getting lost"
Johan Cruyff starred on Monday night in the radio station COPE, where he criticized the transfer policy of recent years at FC Barcelona. He also referred to the option of signing Pogba, ensuring that the figures of which they speak are exorbitant:
Model of La Masia
"The style of Barcelona has always been nurtured by youth players in recent years a few or none reached the first team. This is the reverse situation to which we are accustomed."
"The figures handled seem absurd. €80 milion for Pogba is ridiculous. Before we had Xavi, Messi, Iniesta... how much were them? We were creating an important brand, La Masia, and now this is disappearing."
"He has always been good in difficult times; Let's see the goals he has scored. He is a very hard working guy and has had significant value for Barcelona."
"I feel sadness for the departure of Casillas. After so many years in Madrid, he should have left with all the merits. But these are things decided by people who is not in the field. They are always wrong."
