In case Barca buys Neymar (27) from PSG this summer, their box still holds the 8/11 positions that Juventus won four years ago. The reason for the above does not arise from Barca's fear of change.
Proof that this team is still spending a lot of money on recruiting Philippe Coutinha, Ousmane Dembele, Samuela Umtiti, Arde Turan, Aleix Vidal, Andre Gomes, Lucas Digne, Paco Alcacer, Denis Suarez or Gerard Deulofeu. The problem is that most novices moving to Nou Camp do not meet expectations. That is why Barca still has to rely on players who have turned to "the three," but not to be called the old general.
In any case, keeping too many pillars has led to Barce's average age rising from 26.6 to 28.5. It is the same figure as happened in Juventus, a team with a constant average age over 4 years ago.
Compared to Barca and Juve, many other big players such as PSG, Bayern or Man City own a younger team. Although Bayern still has an average age of 26.6 years, PSG and Man City have added young elements to considerably lower average age.
Even four years ago, Barca retained the box of every title of the Champions League
