Laporte Not Willing To Name Barcelona Transfer Target

 The former Barca supremo believes he has the upper hand to keep Lionel Messi at Camp Nou if he triumphs in the club's elections

Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta says he will not be drawn into naming potential transfer targets like several of the candidates he is competing with.

An end to the tenure of Josep Maria Bartomeu – with whom Lionel Messi has had a tense relationship – as president in October has prompted the club to bring forward their elections to January 24.

The 33-year-old Messi sent shockwaves through the world of football when he expressed a desire to end his near two-decade association with the Blaugrana ahead of the 2020-21 season, but after a lengthy transfer saga, he opted to stay put.
