Laporta going all in to lure Guardiola back

Laporta reportedly going all in to try and lure Guardiola back to Camp Nou

May 27, 2021 By Oscar Rojas
Barcelona's new boss wants Guardiola to lead his new project with the Blaugrana side after nine years away from Camp Nou.

Earlier this week, reports coming in from Barcelona hinted that Joan Laporta had asked Ronald Koeman for a 15-day period to decide if he would continue as Barcelona's boss. Today, sources close to the team have reported that the president has targeted Pep Guardiola as his main objective to become the team's new coach.

According to reports by Diario As, the recently elected president is ready to hand Guardiiola a massive offer to make him leave Manchester City to coach Los Culés one more time, but the team's main man will not present his case to Pep until the former coach ends the season at Manchester City.

The source that spoke to As revealed that Laporta would be keen on hiring Guardiola as soon as possible, but he would even be willing to let him stay one more year at Manchester City and then welcome him back. The reason? He would keep Ronald Koeman around and save the club around eight million euros that are included in the Dutch boss' deal at Camp Nou is he was sacked after only one of the two seasons he agreed to coachLos Blaugranas.

While those close to Laporta have been perfectly clear about their slim chances to see Guardiola back at Camp Nou, the president strongly believes he has what it takes to convince Pep to come back to the Catalan side...even if he has to wait one year to see that happening.
