Laporta ‘guarantees’ Barca success

Joan Laporta has ‘guaranteed’ Barcelona would continue to win trophies if he returns as President, and discussed the club’s interest in Paul Pogba.

Laporta appeared on Catalan radio, with his comments published by Sport and Marca.

“I guarantee Barca will win because we know how to develop sporting success,” he is quited as saying.

“Pogba would be one of the best signings we could make. Everyone thinks he would fit Barca’s system and he would be excited to play here.

“We have a good relationship with [Pogba’s agent] Mino Raiola from the transfers of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Maxwell.

“If I have a signing, I’ll present him. We’re working on something. If a signing is done it will be the decision of [prospective sporting director] Eric Abidal and myself.

“It’s only right that Luis Enrique remains as Coach. [Jose Ramon] Alexanko would be the director of La Masia. We want to promote that model.”
