Pep Guardiola is in line of a possible return to Barcelona if Victor Font is elected as the club’s new president.
The Barcelona presidential candidate believes that tailsman Lionel Messi will stay at Barcelona if he is reunited with former boss Guardiola, who is currently at Manchester City.
“Most of the best professionals who know about this style are also fans and love the club, like Pep Guardiola, Xavi, Andres Iniesta, Carles Puyol,” Font told Sky Sports News.
“They are all legends that love Barcelona but do not work for Barca today – we need to bring them back to ensure we will have a very competitive project. The only thing Messi needs is to know he is part of a competitive project that aspires to win the next Champions League.
“We have no doubt that if we basically have the honour to take the helm of FC Barcelona we will be able to achieve that (Messi staying).”
