Candidate for the presidency of FC Barcelona, Toni Freixa says he is supported by an investor ready to splurge for the Catalan club.
Joan Laporta, Victor Font and Toni Freixa, they are still three to run for the presidency of the FC Barcelona, left free by Josep Bartomeu. Between now and March 7 and the long-awaited election, the candidates are called upon to lift the veil on their respective programs, by competing with more or less complicated promises to keep. The last of the three contenders cited is not the least talkative in the matter, he who on the airwaves of the RAC 1 announces “two cracks in attack and a great defender”.
Supported by an investor who would be ready to bet 250 million euros from the next transfer window, Toni Freixa ensures to be able to build a competitive Barça. Without dwelling too much on the gaping debt of the Blaugranas. “The message is that Barca will have the competitive squad that our partners need and want. I’m telling you, we will have the most competitive team for the 2021-2022 season, ”he insists, ensuring that he is already in negotiations with several renowned players.
“Two unique players”
“We will not talk about the players until we have recruited them, because they can benefit from the discussions”, proclaims this lawyer by profession. And to guarantee that the targets in question will be “adored” by Ronaldo Koeman, the current Barcelona coach, because “they are two unique players”. At the evocation of Mbappé and Haaland, Toni Freixa nods and adds being able to take an interest in such players. Same optimism about the case Lionel messi, at the end of the contract next June. “Messi is as deadly as us, he knows the situation of the club and I am convinced that he will wait for the new president to decide his future”, he concludes.
