Barcelona president Joan Laporta has claimed that Barcelona have a better team than Real Madrid.

Speaking ahead of the start of the 2023-24 campaign, Laporta insisted that the Blaugrana will continue to dominate the La Liga, after winning it last season.

“We have a better team than Madrid and, individually, we are also better, with some difference than our rivals,” Laporta told Sport.

“As a club member and fan, I am very satisfied with the team we are building.”

He went on: “We already have a very competitive team.

“We have won the Spanish League and we can continue exercising dominance in this competition. We also want to be in the group of candidates to win the Champions League.

“I focus on making a good team over signing individuals. We have signed Gundogan and Martinez and they will give us great performances like the others that are going to come.

“We are missing a right-back and we are working on it. We also want to reinforce our midfield line.”
