The man who will leave Messi?

Joan Laporta has been elected president of Barcelona for the second time.

This is how the night was determined (between Sunday and Monday) after the election campaign held yesterday.

He defeated Victor Pont and Tony Freisha.

Elections were scheduled to take place in January, but were postponed due to the Corona disease in Spain.

He will serve in the position for six years.

Laporta, who served as president from 2003 to 2010 (under his leadership the club recorded two Champions League wins), has already stated that he is able to persuade Leo Messi, the team's big star, to stay.

The Flea's contract expires at the end of the season.

In an exclusive interview with Israel Today last month, he told Aporta, "I will do everything so that Leo Messi will not continue."

Regarding the details of the 33-year-old star's contract that were exposed and caused a stir, Laporta said: "Lau makes a lot more money than he earns. What Messi returns to the club is money, but also emotion and professional success. He has no price, he is a winner. We have won countless titles, "He scored 650 goals, and the honor he arouses in the opponents simply has no price. He is also the favorite player for the children."

The 58-year-old Laporta, who lost the previous election in 2015, was selected during a turbulent period at the luxury club.

The team will probably end up in the Champions League as early as this week after the meeting with PSG, which won 1: 4 in the first meeting in the quarterfinals at the Camp Nou.



In the Spanish league Barça is also recording a mediocre season, although it has started to recover recently.

It is in second place in the table, three points away from its leader Atletico Madrid missing game. 

In addition, also at the political level the group went through a turbulent period, which culminated last week.

Former President Joseph Maria Bartomeu, who resigned last October, has been arrested on suspicion of involvement in corruption.
