Jordi Farre, pre-candidate to the Barcelona presidency, explained this Tuesday that his team are negotiating Neymar’s return to Barca. He said they will request to sign the player.
Pre-candidate Jordi Farre explained this Tuesday that his team “are in negotiartions to bring Neymar back to Barca” while presenting his sporting and financial plans.
“Neymar and Leo Messi want to play together and his signing will be very cheap because he’s in the final year of his contract. We’ll ask for a transfer request. 15 days after going to Paris, he wanted to come back. I think it was an underhand sale,” he added. “Barca’s first team must come largely from La Masia and be complemented with world class players like Neymar,” Farre said.
Farre also thinks the players from La Masia “must five they can break into the first team like when Pep Guardiola went for Sergio Busquets and Pedro.”
In addition, Farre said that “not only the best technical players” must be at La Masia. He believes they should also work on tactical, physical and mental aspects.”
He announced that if he wins the elections on 24th January, he will create “a pay scale in the first team which will be constantly updated. The veterans must understand their new role with more realistic and shorter contract extensions,” he added.

Barca’s women’s team will play the important matches at the Camp Nou. “I’ll be the president who’ll lift Barca’s first Women’s Champions League,” Farre said. The sporting side of Farre’s project will be led by Joan Soler, current president of FC Vilafranca.
The financial side of things will be run by Josep Triado, mayor of Premia de Dalt. Farre said if he is elected, he will do “an audit of the previous board and take action against negligent, disloyal or illegal actions.”
On ‘Espai Barca’, he said that his team are looking for “a more sustainable formula than the current financing project of Goldman Sachs.”
Farre also announced that he will give Barca their “own clothing brand with part of the production in Catalonia and a partnership agreement with a global brand. I will be something like Air Jordan-Nike.”
