Barcelona legend Johan Cruyff says that if he was in charge of the club, he would think about selling Lionel Messi to make room for Neymar.

Former Barcelona player and coach Johan Cruyff has claimed that he would consider parting with Lionel Messi following the arrival of Neymar.

The Brazilian international agreed to link up with the Spanish champions later this summer from Santos for £50m.

Discussing the 21-year-old's arrival, Cruyff has questioned if there will be enough room at Camp Nou for both him and Messi.

"With Neymar on board, I would have planned for the possibility of selling Messi. Some would agree with that, others not," he said.

Messi has scored 313 goals in 379 appearances for the Catalan club.
