Joan Laporta has been occupied since his re-selection as Barcelona president. From solving financial problems to trying to restore the club to its greatest heights, there has been a whole lot of work to do.

With plethora of transfers completed and possibly many more on the way, Laporta spoke to discuss what activities he is currently involved in and what other dealings everyone can expect.

Ousmane Dembele’s renewal was an imperative topic of discussion during the interview. On which, Laporta stated: “The contract ends in the summer and we have to sit down and talk. I know he is comfortable at Barcelona. We’ll see what happens.”

About the possible union of Erling Haaland and the return of Lionel Messi, he stated: “Haaland? We are not going to incorporate any player who alters the salary system. As for Messi, the doors are always open at Barcelona.”

On Xavi, whose leadership has led to a magnificent revival for the team, he stated: “Hiring Xavi is one of the best decisions I’ve made during this mandate.”

Laporta also overlooked some other pieces of business, counting the contract with CVC, which still remains a probability. Nevertheless, he says that he wants to assure the deal is actually feasible and will not create any debt in the coming future.

He spotlights that if not for the CVC agreement, he has two other options to augment income for the club.

The Barcelona president was also questioned about the team’s chances for the La Liga title this season, to which he stated: “Winning La Liga is always possible. We found the identity of our game with Xavi, the challenge is possible but we must first beat Sevilla on Sunday.”
