The potential next president wants the elections to be brought forward again
Victor Font, a pre-candidate for the Barcelona presidential election, has insisted that they be brought forward. They were already moved to March from June in 2021 by current incumbent Josep Maria Bartomeu after the Bayern farce.
Font put special emphasis on the need to sort out the next president quickly to help steer the Lionel Messi situation back the right way, with the player able to sign a contract with another side from January 1.
Font said that to Leo, "a project of maximum winning possibility should be presented, with competent people in the technical team and the board."
"The next project should begin as soon as possible. Leo can negotiate from January with another club and it's necessary for Messi to believe these guarantees for the future before he's free."
Font was clear on the steps to follow. "The board should resign and start the elections as quickly as we can. In the coming months there will be important decisions for the future of the club and Messi too. If the elections are not brought forward it will not be possible for a new (president) to make these calls."
