Barcelona presidential candidate plans to appoint Premier League manager

Lionel Messi-Barcelona

Barcelona presidential candidate Victor Font is keen on bringing Pep Guardiola back at the club at the end of this season.

The Spaniard enjoyed great success as the manager of Barcelona in the past and it will be interesting to see if he decides to return to the Spanish club at the end of the season.

Guardiola has won almost every domestic trophy with Manchester City and he will be keen on winning the Champions League with the Premier League side this season.

If he manages to win the European trophy with Manchester City it is likely that he will look for a new challenge in the summer. 

A return to Barcelona wouldn’t be a bad option for him. The Spanish outfit are in need of a rebuild and Guardiola is one of the best managers in the world. It could be the ideal addition for the Spanish outfit if they manage to pull it off.

The return of Guardiola could persuade the likes of Lionel Messi to continue at the club.

The Argentine superstar was keen on leaving Barcelona earlier this summer but the resignation of Joseph Bartomeu could change his stance.

Messi was unhappy with the former Barcelona president and his way of running the club.

Barcelona have failed to succeed in Europe and domestically in the recent years and they will be desperate to win the major trophies once again.

Pep Guardiola’s appointment could help them regain their status as the European elite in the coming seasons.

Guardiola has very little to prove at Manchester City and it wouldn’t be surprising if he considered a new challenge in the summer.

Manchester City fans will be hoping that the Spaniard stays at the club beyond this season and it will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds in the coming months.

A lot will depend on the appointment of Victor Font as the Barcelona president as well. It remains to be seen whether he can win the election. But the man in question, is not in a mood to consider such proposal anytime soon.

Barcelona are in need of a reshaping from top to bottom and it would be a masterstroke from Font if he managed to bring back the most successful Barcelona manager in recent history.
