“Guardiola is a genius and he has the doors of his house open whenever he wants,” Bartomeu told The Times.

“The other day I read that he would like to take over La Masia in the future, it seems perfect to me.

“That’s what we offered him when he told us he wanted to leave because he was tired because of the pressure.

“His return would be great news,” he said.
