Joan Laporta Vows to Bring Pep Guardiola Back to Barcelona as Part of 2016 Nou Camp Presidential Bid

Bayern Munich manager will be offered chance to return to Catalan giants.

Laporta will look to tempt Guardiola into leaving Bayern Munich to fill the role as Barcelona’s sporting director though perhaps the 43 year old would be more interested in a move to manage the club for a second spell?

During Laporta’s last stint as Barca president, from 2003 and 2010, the Nou Camp side collected 12 titles and given the club’s current standing there is every chance he would win any election campaign.

Barcelona are not faring all that well under Luis Enrique, the club behind rivals Real Madrid in the La Liga table, and a fair bit of in-fighting appears to be going on at present.

Laporta is also looking to put together a coaching team made up of former players and will look to bring Carles Puyol back to the club, the defender having quit as assistant director of footballer earlier this week, alongside Xavi and Eric Abidal.

The 52 year old lawyer will also look to end the parnership between Barcelona and Qatar Airways.
