Barcelona enter race to sign Mbappe, ready to offer him €90M

Barcelona enter race to sign Mbappe, ready to offer him €90M

Barcelona, despite its financial difficulties, continues to display enormous goals in the transfer market. If a story from AS is to be believed, the Catalan giants will try to sign Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer next year.

Mbappe was on the verge of joining La Liga this summer, with Barcelona's arch-rivals Real Madrid making repeated proposals for his talents only to be rejected by Paris Saint-Germain.

However, with his contract expiring in eight months and no extension in sight, all indicators point to the 22-year-old sensation leaving on a free transfer. While Real Madrid remains a strong contender for his signature, Barcelona intends to stymie their rivals' intentions by making an offer for Mbappe around the turn of the year, when he will be free to talk with teams from other countries.

According to the source, Barcelona intends to seek the assistance of super-agent Pini Zahavi, who assisted in the world-record transfer of Neymar to PSG in 2017, in order to bring Mbappe to Camp Nou next season.

While the club's recent losses present a bleak picture, Barcelona are optimistic that they will have the finances to bring in reinforcements and a greater salary cap than this season. In the shape of Mbappe, they plan to make a single statement signing.

The Blaugrana are prepared to spend a €90 million signing-on bonus for the French international. They believe Real Madrid will only pay €50 million, and they intend to outbid them with a higher incentive.

Furthermore, according to the source, Los Blancos may be willing to offer him €17 million in net compensation each year, the same as Gareth Bale, whose contract expires at the conclusion of the season. And, in order to get the 22-year-old to Camp Nou, Barcelona would be willing to go even higher, though the wage bill could become a huge concern.

There is nothing specific at this time, and much will rely on Barcelona's financial status and the pay cap for next season. The Catalans, on the other hand, appear willing to agitate their rivals' camp by attempting to sign Mbappe.
