Barcelona Came Close to Signing Mbappe

Barcelona Came Close to Signing Mbappe

Surfing the world-wide-web looking for something different on this first Tuesday of the third international break of the season, we stumbled across something that might prove of interest.

According to the news source L`Equipe, Barcelona could very well have been fielding a front three of Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Kylian Mbappe.

Our referenced source is of the opinion that Barcelona had agreed a deal with Monaco to bring the exciting French teenage striker to the Camp Nou.

The deal would also have seen Arda Turan move to Monaco in part exchange.

Unfortunately, as we`re all aware now, the deal didn`t happen.

Instead Mbappe opted to stay in French football and joined Paris Saint-Germain on a season long loan deal with a permanent deal set to take place in the summer of 2018 with Paris Saint-Germain handing over the huge fee of £158 million.

I wonder how Mbappe would have fared playing alongside Messi and Suarez.

I guess we can only speculate now!
