Remember that mystery player that Josep Maria Bartomeu has been promising as his big candidacy project? Well, this player will sign with Barcelona.

At least that's what the current president and re-election candidate is saying. Attending an event at a city tennis club, Bartomeu gave an interview and confirmed that he has secured the signing of a Spanish central midfielder who plays in La Liga and that was asked by Luis Enrique right after the Champions League Final.

"The staff asked for a certain player. We already have him, but we aren't able to share his name."

This mystery signing has become one of the summer's best stories so far. We've already seen a hilarious number of speculative articles about it, but recently it seems like the consensus guy is Koke, the Atlético Madrid star who has long been a target for Luis Enrique and his staff.

It is interesting to see if this mysterious man will still sign for the Blaugrana even if Bartomeu loses the election. Let's follow the developments.
