Candidate for the presidency of Barça, Victor Font considers that the Catalan club clearly does not have the means to afford big names.
Third man in the race for the presidency of the Barça, Toni Freixa intends to thwart the predictions which announce a duel between Joan Laporta, the favorite, and Victor Font, his main rival. And fifteen days before the ballot which will appoint the successor of Josep Maria Bartomeu, the outsider intends to make Barcelona fans dream. “I tell you, we will have the most competitive team possible for the 2021-2022 season”, he assured, announcing, in case of victory, the arrival of “two cracks in attack and a great defender ”.
And if he refuses to give names until their presentation, he assures that he is convinced of being able to recruit and Kylian Mbappé and Erling Braut Haaland. Consequence of the arrival of an investor ready to inject no less than 250 million euros in the coffers of Barça. Enough to allow the arrival of big names but also to convince Lionel Messi to continue the adventure with his training club. “Messi is as asshole 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 indeed added.
Words that were not to the taste of Victor Font, who has taken a much more austere (realistic?) Line since the start of the campaign. “If we want people to believe that we can put more money on the table… We need to have a good sports structure and correct this unbalanced workforce. Recruit Haaland or Mbappé, the concierge of Núñez (former controversial president of Barça, Editor’s note) or Florentino with his model of the galactics can do it, but our model is different. We are a train running at 200km / h and we have to brake, ”he said. A lucid speech that will certainly not make the fans dream.
