Reports: Ex-Barcelona President Promises Lionel Messi One Superstar Signing
A former FC Barcelona president has reportedly promised Lionel Messi that he will make one superstar signing should he win the upcoming election for the club presidency.
The Argentine is said to be frustrated with how the Blaugrana are being managed at board level, and has apparently vowed not to sign a new contract if there is no significant change.
According to Diario Gol, Joan Laporta has told Messi that he will sign Juventus star Paulo Dybala if he succeeds Josep Maria Bartomeu as the club's president in the upcoming elections.
The Albiceleste captain apparently wants his countryman replace the void left by Neymar, but knows it will take a strong leader to get the deal done.
It is believed that Laporta, 55, still has a strong following at the club, and is expected to get many votes from the board's heavyweights during the next election.
Messi, who is a huge supporter of Laporta, is hoping the former president can come in and stabilise the club after a rough few months.
