Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu has enraged a number of first-team players at the Camp Nou over his failed pursuit of Neymar, according to a report.
According to Marca, the influential trio now believe that Bartomeu made false statements in a bid to appease them, and that he never truly committed to getting the deal done.
Other players that have been upset by the pursuit of the 27-year-old Brazilian are those that were seemingly made disposable. Ivan Rakitic, Ousmane Dembele, Arthur and Nelson Semedo were all offered to Paris Saint-Germain as part of a deal - but all remain at Barcelona.
It is understood that these players have been made to feel marginalised, and that Ernesto Valverde has a tough task ahead to stabilise the dressing room.
The Blaugrana have taken just four points from their opening three league matches and host Valencia on Saturday night.body check tags ::
