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?


  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!

  4. David16.6.15

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

  5. Rotimi16.6.15

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

  6. William16.6.15

    Barcelona should buy Eriksen from tottenham

  7. Barca has the perfect team right now. We dont need to buy players

  8. Rotimi16.6.15

    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

  9. Malwande16.6.15

    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.

  11. Barca should buy Pogba and sell pedro then buy rues to replace pedro

Barcelona must improve dramatically to even dream of comeback vs Juventus

Barcelona host Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday (2:30 PM ET, EXCLUSIVE ONLINE STREAMING here). The Catalans, who fully deserved the 3-0 defeat in the first leg, will have to once again fight for a miraculous comeback in front of their home fans.

Luis Enrique's men must try their utmost to pile up the pressure from the initial whistle and score an early goal if they are going to have any chance of qualifying for the semifinals. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and the rest of the Barcelona stars must ensure they use the whole width of the pitch and constant ball movement in order to open up spaces within the Juventus back-line.

Barcelona captain Andres Iniesta seemed to be up for the challenge during his pre-match press conference: "We have the potential and the players to turn it around. We have to play a perfect game. We have to create the maximum number of chances and score goals. I have no doubt there will be a great atmosphere tomorrow—the fans will be behind us. A…

How to watch El Clasico online, on mobile and on TV | HD Real Madrid - Barcelona Streaming

Barcelona travel to the Santiago Bernabeu to face Real Madrid in the biggest game in world football: El Clasico! Currently trailing Los Blancos by three points in the La Liga table, Luis Enrique's men have no option but to take the three points back to Catalunya if they are to conquer the league again this season.

In the absence of the banned Neymar, Barca will trust Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez to lead their attack once again. If the team's midfield can take control of the game with their traditional commanding passing and their back-line manages to avoid any unnecessary slip-ups, there is reason to believe in a Blaugrana victory in El Clasico.

There's no two ways about it: You would be crazy miss a second of the action as watching El Clasico is now easier than ever -- even on the go! Whether you live in or outside the USA, you can easily stream every Barca match to your desktop computer, mobile device or even your TV.

Barcelona right to appeal Neymar controversial ban ahead of El Clasico

Neymar's decision to applaud the referee after being sent off during Barcelona's defeat in Malaga on Sunday was not very clever. His childish reaction after being shown a controversial red card gave the Spanish officials a golden opportunity to ban him for the Catalans' next three matches -- including the upcoming Clasico against Real Madrid.

As it was to be expected, the Barcelona board have wasted no time in starting the process to appeal Neymar's disproportionate ban. It is believed the Camp Nou giants will until Friday 21st April, two days before El Clasico, to file their appeal at the TAD Committee. That way, it is more than likely that the officials will run out of time to make a decision and be forced to postpone the case a further week -- meaning that Neymar would be able to suit up against Real Madrid after all.

Sure, Neymar's behaviour was out of order. Having said that, it is hardly surprising that the Spanish officials banned him for just enough matche…

Neymar must stay to secure Barcelona long-term success

Neymar has been excellent for Barcelona since he joined the Catalan giants back in the summer of 2013. Despite the many question marks over whether he would accept to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, his professionalism off the pitch and even the legality of his transfer, the Brazilian youngster has made a remarkable impact and deservedly become a Camp Nou favourite.

As our partners as Sbobet Mobile know, Barcelona are not currently leading the La Liga table but nobody in their right mind would rule them out of retaining the title. If the Blaugranas are to leapfrog Real Madrid before the end of the season and win the league for the third consecutive season, Neymar has a huge role to play in the nine games remaining.

Fortunately for Cules, Neymar is currently playing the best football of his whole career. Fully established at both club and international level, the No.11's confidence and excellent form makes him a constant danger that rivals constantly struggle to contain -- …

Barcelona rewriting history after 1,500 matches at glorious Camp Nou

Barcelona have now played a staggering 1,500 games of football at the Camp Nou. The stadium, which was built back in 1957 to replace the legendary Les Corts Stadium due to the demand for tickets exceeding the ground’s capacity, has witnessed 1,119 Barca wins, 238 draws and only 143 defeats over the years.

Barca are clearly not invincible at the Camp Nou but their winning records of 75% and being unbeaten in 90% of home games speaks for themselves.

Barcelona have now become a global phenomenon thanks to not only their dominance, but also the many world-class stars that have been part of their squad over the years. Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar take the vast majority of the spotlight these days, but their success can only be understood as a continuation of the work of legends such as Johan Cruyff, Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Hristo Stoichkov or Lazlo Kubala over the years.

Camp Nou is a synonym of sporting excellence these days. The recent successes under the leadership of Luis Enrique…

Neymar, Messi, Ter Stegen lift Barcelona to greatest comeback in Champions League history

Sergi Roberto’s last gasp winner against Paris Saint Germain became an instantly legendary moment that Barcelona fans will cherish forever. Although the Camp Nou faithful are aware that qualifying for the Champions League quarterfinals is not a huge achievement in itself, the players’ determination to complete the biggest ever comeback in the biggest club competition in world football was impressive.

While it came down to Sergi Roberto to seal the historic win, the La Masia graduate was certainly not the only player to excel in Barcelona’s most important game of the season.

Neymar was, without a shadow of a doubt, the leader who took the Catalan giants to victory. His premonitory ‘1% chance, 99% faith’ tweet before the ball started rolling at the Camp Nou could not have been more fitting for the excellent performance that followed.

The Brazilian star proved a constant nightmare that the astounded Parisian back-line simply had no answer for. His astute positioning, magical dribbling a…

Barcelona should be embarrassed after shocking 3-0 defeat vs Juventus

Barcelona's 3-0 defeat in Turin against Juventus in the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals was little short of embarrassing. Given the recent experience of losing 4-0 in Paris and needing a miracle at the Camp Nou to qualify for the next round, it is baffling to see how Luis Enrique's team failed to learn from their many mistakes.

The inclusion of Jeremy Mathieu in the starting XI, Javier Mascherano's inability to defend corners and Luis Enrique's puzzling decision to play Andre Gomes and keep both Jordi Alba and Paco Alcacer as unused subs are some of the reasons for Barca's dismal performance. Having said that, the main factor was the team's lack of intensity and overall inability to step up the pace to match Juventus' ambition.

Sure, miracles do happen in football and a comeback at the Camp Nou can't be ruled out at this point. However, Lionel Messi and co. should have really tried much harder to not find in such a terrible position fo…
