Am I right in thinking if Font gets elected he'd sell Messi?

He did an interview only recently saying that if he got in he'd ensure Messi leaving would be a smooth transition!
Anything to get votes or seem reasonable. Doubt he would follow through. Wouldn't be till January either way, by which, if Messi really means it, font may not have much choice anyway if Messi decides to sign a pre contract

I am telling you this election thing is of no use to us. The first phase of the no confidence motion may get through. The second phase will happen in December. After that elections will be called mayb in January or so. Messi will be free to sign pre contract then if he wants to. He doesn't need permission from anyone.

If messi decides then not to come then it's entirely on him because no one can force him to stay!

Personally believe, this is only window we should get him

Later, even January, I am not sure about it

I would love it this window. Beyond that, not fussed, trust the club, if they think it right.

I do think this is it though, nail in an already shut coffin.

No way is bartomeu going to want to let messi go, when facing a vote of no confidence going into the second round. Not when he has him where he wants him. The only way would have been to avoid going to court, or leaving the club in a court case after him, accept a compromise to look like he is doing the best for the club. But that card has been removed.

And by January, different landscape.

Just to recap, Leo can walk for free in June meaning in January he can already have a pre-agreement with City. There is nothing for Font or anyone else to do at this point in terms of facilitating a departure

What could happen, however, is that if a competent sports project is in place the player may decide to remain - his biggest gripe/issue was with the board of Bartomeu and the lies & failure to implement a coherent sports project for the club. That means whether it is Font, Benedito, Laporta or anyone else that remaining is more likely a possibility than with Bartomeu or his continuity candidate (Freixa, among others)

Any plan needs money Barcelona are skint and that plan anyway would take years something Messi hasn’t got!

Well Messi would have 3 years of a project left, they are skint, Barca are getting nowhere near winning the CL with the rebuild they have to do, so if Messi is serious about wanting to win more he’s only one option really, however if he doesn’t come now I’d give him a swerve.

It is time vs inertia then.

He has already chosen the easier option, at a time when he seemingly was decided on leaving, and Barcelona looked at its most dire. I doubt he would choose the more disruptive option for his last few years then, once things look to be changing around him, however incrementally.

Whereas we’ve been really close to winning the CL
