Having earlier this week claimed he had secured €250m of investment for the club should he win the election, Freixa has now claimed that two star players had agreements to move to Camp Nou this summer should he win the presidency.

Freixa told Cadena Ser, as per Diario Sport: “There’s an agreement with two players in attack and defence, any player that wants to win the Ballon d’Or knows that they’re only going to be able to win it if they wear Barcelona’s shirt.”

Carlos Tusquets is the current interim president of the Blaugrana following the resignation of former club supremo Josep Maria Bartomeu, with the elections suspended from their original schedulated date of 24 January.

Freixa told reporters on Monday, in quotes that have been carried by Marca: “We have closed an agreement with an investor who will contribute 250 million for Barça.”

Freixa served on the board under former incumbents Sandro Rosell and Josep Maria Bartomeu but left the board in 2015.
