Jordi Cruyff will also return to Barcelona under Joan Laporta

Cruyff has been hot property in the election campaign and is also part of Font's plans

With four days to go until the presidential election at FC Barcelona, the details of the three candidates are still being put into place.

This time, the name in question is Jordi Cruyff, with the journalist Oriol Domenech claiming the ex-footballer will be part of Joan Laporta's team.

It's curious because Victor Font has already announced publicly that he also is counting on Cruyff if he's elected. Cruyff would be his sporting director.

However, the latest news doesn't rule out Font's plan. Cruyff, in fact, has confirmed to both candidates that he would be willing to come back to Barça.

"It's not about aligning with anyone, the candidates called him because in the case that they win, they want him in their team. We saw in the debate all three (Toni Freixa is the third candidate) have spoken with Xavi," Domenech said on Esport 3.

Laporta's plan is for Mateu Alemany to take on a sort of general manager role and for Cruyff to work alongside him as the sporting director.

"He will be like Raúl Sanllehi with Txiki and Zubizarreta. But Sanllehí was below them. In this case, I think they would be at the same level," Domenech added.
