Lionel Messi wants €200 million superstar at Barcelona

Barcelona are eyeing a deal for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe. Lionel Messi has told the top brass that he would be delighted to partner up with the Frenchman up top for Barcelona. The Cules are willing to offer €150 million and Philippe Coutinho in order to convince PSG to part with the 20-year-old.

The arrival of Philippe Coutinho in Paris could further the Ligue 1 Champions’ chances of retaining Neymar Jr. whose future continues to be the subject of much speculation. In case, PSG decide to reject Coutinho, Barcelona are willing to include Ivan Rakitic in the operation.

Rakitic is one player who has been widely tipped to move away from Barcelona in the summer. Barcelona are not entirely convinced with the consistency of Dembele and are looking to bolster their attack as multiple previous signings made in that same regard have failed to work out.
