"I'm very, very happy to have him here with us. Will he have an understanding with Messi? They are two great players. One is the best player in the world, ever, and now we are adding another great player," said Vilanova.

"It won’t be a problem for them to understand each other on the pitch … As teams will now have to keep an eye on one of the two players, the other will get more freedom.”
