Kylian Mbappe had his heart set on moving to Barcelona earlier this year, according to football agent Josep Maria Minguella.
Kylian Mbappe was the subject of interest from several of Europe’s biggest sides before joining Paris Saint-Germain on an initial season-long loan.
However, football agent Minguella, who has worked closely with Barcelona in the past, said the Catalans could have snapped up Mbappe, who wanted to play alongside Lionel Messi.
“Mbappe said that he only wanted to sign for Barcelona when he found out that Neymar was going to PSG,” he told Cadena Cope.
“Barca had Mbappe for €120m plus €30m [in add-ons]. I spoke with his father and he only wanted to come to Barca, that he would love to play with [Lionel] Messi. He did not want to go to Real Madrid [because] the BBC are [there].”
