Josep Lluis Nunez, former president of Barcelona, has declared that this current crop of players are better than the 'Dream Team'.

The comments come in the wake of Barca's 4-0 hammering of Sevilla last night which maintained their six point lead at the top of the table.

Even though they have not won anything yet, they are still competing on all three fronts as the season draws to a close.

Speaking to RCT Barcelona, Nunez claimed that he believes that even though they haven't lifted silverware, "this Barcelona side surpasses the Dream Team".

"They are the best team. From an economic perspective, they have a very high financial value," he explained.

Nunez also went on to claim that he believes Barcelona can win all three trophies they are fighting for this season "if nothing strange happens".

The Dream Team of Johan Cruyff is widely regarded as one of the best sides to play the modern game and under the Dutchman, Barcelona won, among other things, four consecutive league titles and a European Cup in the 1990's.

Pep Guardiola has been keen to play down comparisons to that team, but there is no doubt that if his side continue like this then they could match or better those achievements.
