Club legend Carles Puyol set to join Barcelona board next year

Carles Puyol could possibly become a member of Barcelona's brand new board after the elections next year, reliable Oriol Domenech of CatRadio reveals.

The former captain has already discussed this prospect with 5 presidential candidates.

He has been offered two positions: a director and a sporting director.

Puyol leans towards the latter role which would suit him perfectly.

The return of the iconic defender will depend on who wins the elections.

No names have been given but Puyol has been endorsed by Victor Font several times.

2 months ago, Font revealed the main criteria for the next sporting director: "It will be a former player with vast experience."

Eric Abidal used to be Barca's sporting director but he left this summer, shortly after the infamous Champions League debacle.

His aide Ramon Planes replaced the Frenchman.
