Tusquets met with three presidential candidates (Font, Joan Laporta and Toni Freixa) earlier this month and agreed to wait until the summer until the contract with Garcia expires due to the club’s financial situation. With the city.
However, Font made a slow attempt to get the club to change their minds and push the signature forward. Requested by director Ronald Koeman..

“he [would be] The basis of the three trophy battles this season. City accepts more than € 3 million add-ons and doesn’t have to pay until next season. This is a lot less than the Barça offered four months ago.
“Players are also ready to make great efforts and will not be paid until the end of the season.”
Barca Did not reach an agreement We played against the Premier League side in the summer, but players continued to expect movement in January this year.
However, although he has Font support, it is unlikely that there will be any movement before the window closes this week without the participation of candidates Laporta and Freixa.
Laporta says it’s irresponsible to spend money on this month’s signature, which will be available for free this summer, as the club’s debt is rising.

“In the coming months, we won’t be able to invest heavily in signatures,” he added. “We will lose the contract this summer and comb the market for players whose salaries are adapted to the club’s situation.
“We need to rebuild the wage bill and lower it. We have to be honest. We have to decide which players are essential.”
“Harland will be one of the best signatures Barca can make,” he said. “If the structure of the sport considers him a target, it would be very interesting, but we understand that it will be impossible in the next 12 months.”
Barcelona announced on Tuesday The election for the new president will take place on March 7., Josep Maria Bartomeu has resigned for more than four months.
