Cruyff: Barca won't sign Mou or Ronaldo

6 years ago

Johan Cruyffhas dismissed Joan Laporta's talk of bringing Jose Mourinhoand Cristiano Ronaldoto Barcelonaas mere wind with no substance.
Laporta was president of the Catalan giants between 2003 and 2010 and met with Jorge Mendes - agent of the Real Madrid forward and current Chelsea boss - in midweek.
Reports in Spain have been circulating that Laporta will contest the next Barca presidential election with a view to bring the duo to Camp Nou, but club legend Cruyff has no belief in the rumours.
"I don't think there's much to them, they're just idle comments," Cruyff told reporters.
"When you talk about something you know nothing about, you end up kicking up a storm for no reason.
"Sport is a game which holds many possibilities, but in this case they are unlikely to be feasible. I don't imagine that Laporta would bring in Mou and Cristiano."
Ronaldo has played at the Santiago Bernabeu for five years, whereas Mourinho has forged a bitter rivalry with Barca over the past decade with a variety of clubs, despite having worked there early in his career as part of the backroom staff.
Current club president Josep Maria Bartomeu announced his intention to stand for election in 2016 as he continues to lead the club after stepping in early this year when Sandro Rosell resigned over numerous debacles such as Neymar's hidden transfer fees.
