Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font says he hopes to convince forward Lionel Messi to stay at the Nou Camp — and wants to create the “right conditions” for former coach Pep Guardiola’s return.
In a wide-ranging interview with BBC World Service’s John Bennett, the 48-year-old also spoke about Ronald Koeman’s turbulent first three months as coach, transfer targets and the club’s position on a European Super League.
On the possibility of Messi leaving the club
The 33-year-old is widely regarded as the club’s greatest player — he has scored 640 goals, won 10 La Liga titles and four Champions League crowns during his 16 years as a professional at the Nou Camp. The forward put in a transfer request in the summer before choosing to stay. His contract expires next summer.
“Obviously we know that’s a possibility because he said he wanted to leave last summer, but we are hopeful. The elections are coming in 60 days and we will have a new board and a new president and a new project.
“What Messi needs in order to stay at the club is a competitive project. He wants to win — obviously the lack of a project in recent times has affected the way we compete and therefore I’m very much hoping that whenever the new president takes over, hopefully it will be us, we can convince him to stay.”
On Manchester City’s chances of signing him
“Every time [City coach] Pep Guardiola speaks about this, he says it very clearly that he believes that Messi should stay at Barca and that he’s a Barca one-club man. He wishes that he finishes his career at FC Barcelona.”
On what he needs to do to convince Messi to stay
“We need to ensure he understands there is a project, a winning — a competitive project. For us, the association between Barca and Messi is a very strategic association. He’s been at the club since he was 13 and we believe that this association needs to go even beyond the days that he’s on the pitch (post retirement).
“We believe that this association has a lot of potential for the years to come and we are hopeful that if we present this to him and his team he will see this as a good opportunity.”
On the chances of Guardiola returning to Barcelona
Catalan Pep Guardiola, 49, came up through the ranks to become a Barcelona first-team player and then coach, between 2008 and 2012 — he helped the club win three league titles and two Champions League crowns. Guardiola recently signed a new two-year deal with Manchester City, who he took charge of in 2016.
“The project that we’ve been working on is one that will try to create, if we are honoured to be chosen, the right conditions for this top talent, that is very much linked to Barca, to return to their club at some point in time.
“And we know, that at some point, Pep will want to return, even if it’s for personal reasons. Hopefully sooner rather than later we will be able to create those conditions and be able to count on Pep’s talent for the good of the club.”
On former player Xavi still being his preferred choice as head coach
Former midfielder Xavi progressed from the youth team to the first team and won numerous titles with Barcelona between 1998 and 2015, when he left the club.
