Barcelona presidential candidate Joan Laporta is convinced by the talent currently inside the squad.

Laporta has refused to consider adding big name transfer targets to his ticket.

He explained to Goal: "What do I think of the candidates who talk about Neymar or (Erling) Haaland? I think of the players we have, to motivate them.

"At Barça, there are no transition seasons. We left the club at a very high level and seeing Messi, in San Mamés, enjoying with Pedri, seeing him smile is great.

"Seeing the tunnel light in this climate is interesting, as the sporting project matured, how Messi leads, Dembélé helps, De Jong is gaining weight, Pedri combines well with him, last time Moriba was with the first team, Araujo and Mingueza have gone up, there is Riqui Puig.

"To see also if Pique, Sergi Robert and Fati come back quickly. I think we can dream of anything."
