The Barcelona news is increasingly being dominated by the club’s presidential elections which are now just nine days away.
The rules of the delayed election now mean that postal ballots will be included in this election, and El Mundo Deportivo now report that over 20,000 Barcelona members have already cast their vote via this method.
It is highlighted how 22,811 members signed up for the postal ballot, although none of the votes will be opened or counted until all votes are submitted by the deadline on 7 March.
Laporta – who was former Blaugrana president between 2003 and 2010 – had been thought to be the frontrunner for the elections but the final outcome is unclear with all three candidates hopeful of winning the vote.
The vote is significant and will go a long way to deciding the future transfer policy of the club and how the financial situation is handled.
