SPORTS: Mbappe Wanted To Join Barcelona Instead Of PSG - Agent Finally Reveals


Agent Josep Maria Minguella has claimed Kylian Mbappe wanted to move to Barcelona from Monaco in the summer.

Mbappe eventually signed for Paris Saint-Germain, but Minguella said the 18-year-old would have preferred to move to the Camp Nou.


The agent reveals he spoke with Mbappe’s father, who asserted his son’s desire to sign for the La Liga giants. However, when he spoke to Barca on their behalf, the Catalan club opted to sign Borussia Dortmund’s Ousmane Dembele.

“Mbappe said he only wanted to sign for Barcelona when he learned that Neymar was going to go to PSG,” Minguella told Cope. “Barca could have had him for €120m plus €30m in variables. I spoke to his father and he only wanted to join Barca – he would have loved to play with [Lionel] Messi.

“It was very difficult to get through to [Barca president Josep Maria] Bartomeu, but I told him that Neymar was done [to PSG] and that he should sign Mbappe.”
