Joey Barton: Has been banned for 18 months

Laporte faces competition from Josep Maria Bartomeu, Jordi Majo and Agusto Benedito in the race for the presidency and, as the PR war continues, has dropped a big hint he would attempt to sign Pogba from Juventus if elected.

“Pogba would be a great signing,” he told Catalunya Radio.

“He really is a very strong player. He is still young and has the desire to join Barcelona.

“I have a great relationship with his agent, Mino Raiola. If we decide to try to sign Pogba, he will definitely be a great intermediary.”

Manchester City, Chelsea, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are also reported to be interested in Pogba, but the 22-year-old France international has previously admitted it would be “a dream come true” to play alongside Barca star Lionel Messi.
