Valverde: Barcelona Could Not Sign Mbappe

share on:

Barcelona head coach Ernesto Valverde says there was no chance of Kylian Mbappe joining the club.

The young forward joined PSG from Monaco on loan, with the move expected to be made permanent next season.

Mbappe was linked with a number of clubs in the off-season and his manager said he wanted to join Barcelona when he heard Neymar was leaving.

But Valverde insists the club was not keen on bringing him to the club.

“I don’t know what to say to you. There’s always talk about a lot of players,” he told a news conference on Friday.

“To my knowledge, we couldn’t have signed him. But I don’t know, no idea. I guess not, because he’s not here.”
