The candidates for the elections to the presidency of the FC Barcelona that will be held on March 7, they have prepared their road maps. Joan Laporta, Víctor Font Y Toni Freixa They know that it will be important, when they take office, to strengthen the Barça first team so that the team is competitive. Here’s what each of them said about reinforcements.
In the case of Joan Laporta, at all times, has been against proposing transfer names for two reasons: The first is not to destabilize the team; the second, not to alter the price of the player in question since, at the moment in which he pronounces it, his price will skyrocket.
In this sense, the great ‘signing’ that Joan Laporta can promise is Leo Messi, since he is the only one with a personal relationship with the Argentine strong enough to make him change his mind about his departure. “Nobody can have doubts that Messi loves Barça. My relationship with him is one of respect and esteem,” he said.
Víctor Font, from the ‘Yes to the Future’ candidacy, has especially based his candidacy by assuring Xavi Hernández as a fundamental piece of the sports structure. The Egarense would take the sporting control of the club, in a role similar to the one Sir Alex Ferguson did at Manchester United a few years ago.
The other name that Víctor Font has promoted is that of Eric García, being in favor of signing him last winter market. However, the asset of the Manchester City defender is not powerful as an electoral weapon since the youth squad will most likely arrive for free whoever the president is.
Toni Freixa, from the Fidels candidacy to Barça, has not talked about signings and has delegated this function to his sports director, Lluís Carreras. “Not just any player can come because the objective is to recover the methodological essence,” Carreras said recently. Their electoral assets are more focused on the partner than on transfer promises.
