Ingla has decided to run for president

Catalan sports paper El Mundo Deportivo claims that former Barcelona marketing and sports vice-president Marc Ingla has decided to run for president of FC Barcelona in the elections on 13 June.

Ingla, who reportedly has been in contact with political and social actors over the past weeks, would not plan to publicly announce his candidacy soon but would already be working on the practical organization of his campaign.

Sources close to the future candidate are mentioned as saying that several of the seven directors - Albert Vicens, Ferran Soriano, Xavier Cambra, Antoni Rovira, Clàudia Vives-Fierro, Evarist Murtra and Josep Lluís Vilaseca - who left the club at the same time as Ingla in 2008 could join his project.
