Farre found it quite humorous and intimate that commentary could be made without going that far. “I heard him complaining about referees and TV commentators,” Farre said at a press conference.

Florentino Perez may be cheeky, but not that much

Barcelona presidential candidate Jordi Farre criticized Real Madrid president Florentino Perez after complaining about what he perceives as unfair television coverage. Farre found it quite humorous and intimate that commentary could be made without going that far. “I heard him complaining about referees and TV commentators,” Farre said at a press conference. “You may be cheeky, but not that much”. The presidential candidate also said that he spoke with Neymar and the Paris Saint-Germain striker could return to Camp Nou for a fee of €45 to €55 million. “It is a way to make Lionel Messi’s dream come true again. Neymar will be welcome, but the first thing he has to do is withdraw the demands, ask for forgiveness without humiliation,” Farre said.

“However, it is very cheap. FIFA has a tool, a transfer request that can be requested in the last year of the contract. Neymar reckons it will cost between €45 and €55 million. Xavi Hernandez was a big part of this electoral build-up, but Farre said he would not join the Blaugrana as a coach for a couple of years. “Xavi is the best midfielder in the history of football,” he stated. “He already told us that he would not come to Barcelona until 2022.”
