The former Blaugrana bigwig spoke about the Messi and Suarez situations
Ariedo Braida worked as an international football figure in Barca's sporting directorship between January 2015 and Augusy 2019. He is no longer at the club but spoke about it to Tuttomercatoweb.
"Barca without Messi? I can't see it, I can only see it with Messi," said Braida, who understands the situation is complex but eventually believes they can figure something out to keep the Argentine where he belongs.
Braida also spoke about Luis Suarez, whose time at Barcelona is up.
"He's a great goalscorer, he'll keep scoring wherever he goes, while he's still playing he'll score goals," added the Italian.
On Lautaro Martinez he said: "He's got the right profile, the DNA to play for Barcelona."
And finally he chipped in with a line about Arturo Vidal, who is poised to sign for Inter Milan: "He's got the temperament, he's a warrior and the ideal player for Conte because he loves this kind of player."
