Pep Guardiola linked with returning to Spain as Coach to the Spanish giants Barcelona
Victor Font, the club’s presidential front-runner needs Pep to come back to Camp Nou. He believes that Pep Guardiola’s return to Barcelona can make Lionel Messi sign a new contract.
Barcelona is currently without a president. This is after the departure of Josep Bartomeu.
Last season, Barcelona struggled to secure any trophy at all competitions. The Catalans even endured a humiliating defeat in the Champions League against Bayern Munich.
That loss led to the sacking of Setien at the Nou Camp. So former star defenseman Ronald Koeman came as a new manager to Barcelona.
But before the start of the new season of the League, the Barcelona Board had a major problem with Lionel Messi who decided to exit Manchester City as his next destination.
Guardiola sees his contract at Manchester City expire at the end of this season.
