Pep Guardiola wanted back at Barcelona by presidential candidate Joan Laporta

Guardiola's contract at City expires in June next year; Laporta is running to replace current Barcelona president Josep Bartomeu

Joan Laporta will seek to bring former manager Pep Guardiola back to Barcelona if his bid to return as president of the La Liga club in 2021 is successful.

Laporta, who was Barcelona president from 2003 to 2010 and was at the helm when Guardiola was promoted from the youth team to manager of the senior team in 2008, announced his candidacy to replace Josep Bartomeu, who is stepping down from the role next summer.
