Font hopes to convince Messi to extend Barca stay
- Messi whose contract expires in the summer is widely expected to ditch Camp Nou to reunite with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City.
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, 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.
