Barcelona vice-president reacts to Kylian Mbappe links

During a public event, Rafa Yuste, the vice-president of Barcelona, addressed the speculations surrounding the club’s potential pursuit of Kylian Mbappe, the PSG superstar who is also a target for Real Madrid

With Mbappe reportedly available for transfer this summer, rumors surfaced on Monday, indicating Barcelona’s interest in acquiring the 24-year-old World Cup winner.

 Certain reports even mentioned that Barcelona might consider including players like Ousmane Dembele and Gavi as part of the deal to secure the signing, enticing Real Madrid’s attention.

Nevertheless, the Catalan club promptly refuted the rumors, suspecting that they might be a tactic employed by PSG to pressure Real Madrid into making a move for Mbappe.

In response to the speculation linking Barcelona with Mbappe, Yuste has now spoken up, stating: “I am not here to fuel rumours. Anything I say as sporting vice-president would be making a rumour into something bigger.

“I want to tell everyone that we have a squad that with Gündogan, Romeu and Iñigo is already better than last year. These are rumours.”

When questioned about his concerns regarding Mbappe potentially joining Barcelona’s arch-rivals, Real Madrid, Yuste responded: “Not at all. I worry about our team and what I see is that Xavi is giving it more and more importance, in a process that I have already experienced in previous eras.

“And that’s what I’m sticking with. The players who have arrived are very humble players who are going to help these great young players we have to try to make the hegemony of winning the league again a reality.”

Considering the financial predicament Barcelona is currently facing, it is highly unlikely for them to be able to afford the acquisition of Mbappe. Furthermore, the idea of including valuable players like Dembele and Gavi in the deal was always improbable.
