In 2017, there was a tug-of-war between Real Madrid and PSG for the recruitment of Kylian Mbappé. However, FC Barcelona also entered the fray after Neymar’s departure.

Neymar left Barcelona in the middle of the summer of 2017, prompting the Spanish club to quickly seek a replacement.

Javier Bordas, a former executive of the club, confirmed during an interview on El Chiringuito that discussions were held with Wilfried Mbappé, Kylian’s father. It was suggested that Kylian himself even visited Barcelona during this time.

However, internal unanimity was lacking regarding this potential transfer, and the club’s sporting direction ultimately opted for Ousmane Dembélé instead.
