Victor Font is one of the favorites alongside Juan Laporte to take the reigns as president in Barcelona come the end of January 2021. The Spaniard has been vocal in the press about his plans for the club.
Speaking to Goal.com, Font said: “It’s campaign time so it’s normal to hear about popular names but the supporters are smart and know for the first time in history it is not about promising an astonishing name, as happened with [David] Beckham in 2003.
“Now we must generate interest from other angles, there’s a new generation who deserve responsibility and the right conditions for decisions to be taken.
“I love him [Neymar] as a player, I enjoy him because is pure talent but we must be realistic. From now on the club will have strong leadership. In addition, the club is how it is in a financial aspect and he probably wants a competitive salary. We can’t pay for this.”
