Victor Font

,

Toni Freixa

, and

Joan Laporta

will be competing in

Barcelona

’s presidential elections next month. The three candidates are clashing publicly for the undecided votes and one of the main subjects of their talks has been the club’s possible signings in the future. Barcelona are undergoing a financial crisis and Font says it’s ‘irresponsible’ to speak about the big transfers in these times.

“Generating expectations about some of the stars who have dazzled us this week and the Champions League stars is irresponsible because it is not possible to sign them.”

Font told

Diario Sport

in response to Joan Laporta’s recent comments about singing

Erling Haaland

.

“A few weeks ago the same candidate didn’t want to sign Eric Garcia in the January transfer window because there’s no money at the club.

Font admitted that he admires Haaland’s qualities as a striker and said the Catalans will be looking for a forward in the next transfer window.

“Since the departure of Luis Suarez the sports structure is clear that the forward needs to be strengthened.”
