Joan Laporta will be in the FC Barcelona's elections on July 18 | Weloba

Joan Laporta is back. In fact, he will be on FC Barcelona elections on the next July 18. Laporta was the president of FC Barcelona from 2003-2010, and left the club for the elections that arrived in 2010. Now he will be in the next elections and he did it with this video that had this message.


Paul Pogba, Kondogbia, Gundogan: Luis Enrique asks Barcelona to get him a midfielder | Sport

Luis Enrique wants a midfield organiser for the month of January who is capable of filling a hole left by Xavi. The first candidate was Ilkay Gundogan, but with the alternatives available, the interest has fallen on that front. For 2016, Luis Enrique wants to add muscle to the middle of the pitch and is enthusiastic at the possibility of signing Paul Pogba (Juventus), with Geoffrey Kondogbia (Monaco) an option if the former proves impossible.

"I made contact with Pogba," Benedito said. "First I spoke with Andrea Agnelli and then personally with the player. We were asked for €12 million net per season, and a transfer fee of €80 million." Benedito, a long-time critic of the previous Barcelona board, is currently an outsider in the upcoming poll, with outgoing president Josep Maria Bartomeu the most favoured candidate yet declared, and former club secretary Toni Freixa also a declared runner.


Martin Montoya, Adriano, Douglas, Jordi Masip: Time to leave Barcelona? | Sport

Barcelona will begin to lighten their squad in the next few weeks, with up to four players expected to leave the club after helping Luis Enrique's side win the treble. However, they will leave seeking more minutes then they were given at Camp Nou last season. 


Brand Barcelona: The numbers game | TotalBarca

We all love what we see on the pitch; Messi and Neymar wreaking havoc every week, oppositions being demolished with impunity and trophies celebrated at the end of the season. But have we ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes? Just how big is FC Barcelona? Does a person living in war-torn South Sudan have a chance of supporting this great club? Are we in a position to splash out on players? How does the club make money and how does it rank in a global context? Does the club function in a closed bubble, or has it really expanded its wings in the past few years?

Comments

  1. Joan Laporta is most successful president in Barcelona history, but also one who divided the fanbase between those who adored him and those who simply did not trust his leadership. The early favourite for the upcoming election, do not be surprised if he becomes Barca's supremo once again.

  2. Seeing Douglas included in Barca's transfer list this summer is infuriating, to say the least. Spending €6 million on a player who has only played 106 minutes of football in La Liga is embarrassing. Letting him go, although a necessity if Barcelona are to get any of the money they wasted on him back, would be an admission that he should have never worn the Blaugrana in the first place.

  3. Luis Enrique is opting for muscle to fill in the gap left by Xavi's departure. Fair enough, but it would also be good if he trusted some of the upcoming La Masia talent (Rafinha, Sergi Roberto, Denis Suarez, Samper) as well -- the DNA of Barcelona!

    Barca should loan Bartra, Montoya and Douglas, buy Pogba, Marquinhos and possibly Isco, and sell Pedro.

    Barca should sign Gundogan and Coutinho, loan out Montoya and Bartra then sign one central defender like Otamendi, Mussachio or Hummels

    We don't want Pogba. He's overrated (€80m). Ilkay Gundogan and Coutinho can be secured at €65m- €70m. So it's better to sign the two. Gundogan will replace Xavi while Coutinho will provide competition and cover to d attacking midfield position

    Barca can sign pogba only if he want to play soccer with champions...but if he wana play for money as he want to be a second high paid player on Barca can go to Madrid

  10. Signing Pogba would solidify Barcelona as the ultimate favorite to repeat in winning the treble, which I do think is very realistic. Gundogan does not seem possible as I do not think he would like to sit until January to play.
