Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola could make a sensational Barcelona return should Laporta get re-elected as the club’s president.
Laporta in his first reign handed Pep his first-team managerial role in 2008; a move which would see them go on a six trophy haul the following year.
The pair enjoyed plenty success together before Laporta was replaced by Sandro Rosell the following year.
He now bids to run for the upcoming elections in 2021 and has said he would fancy a sensational comeback for Pep.
“I’m working to introduce myself as a presidential candidate,” Laporta told newsmen.
“I would very much like Guardiola to come back, but now he is at City and it is a decision that Pep should take.
He is a benchmark for Barcelona and many Catalans would like him to train Barca again.
“At the right time, I will speak to the person we think should be a Barca coach from 2021.”
