BREAKING : Barcelona make surprising move for Mbappe.

If you thought the Mbappe transfer saga was over then you're definitely not ready for what's to come. Real Madrid's bitter rivals have entered the race to sign Paris Saint Germain forward Kyilian Mbappe. The French superstar is expected to join Los Blancos (the whites) at season's end.

What's the update?

Superstar 22-year-old Kylian Mbappe is expected to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the current season.

Real Madrid have long courted the France international and are expected to secure his signature. The player made it publicly clear his intentions to join the 13 time European champions in recent weeks.

PSG remain hopeful of Mbappe extending his contract but there could be another twist in the transfer saga.

Madrid's LaLiga rivals Barcelona appear ready to make a surprise move despite despite their ongoing financial crisis.

Barcelona believe they can outspend Madrid and land Mbappe from PSG.

Despite their financial challenges, the Catalans are set to hijack their rivals' move for Mbappe, who will be a free agent in mid-2022.

Barcelona's salary cap will grow by then and vice president Eduard Romeu reportedly wants to make one major signing.

Has Barcelona calculated this move? Do they have the financial capacity to facilitate Mbappe's wages over the long run? Barcelona have been criticised for their inadequate financial management that has led to the offloading of their all time leading goal scorer Lionel Messi.

The question remains. Where is Mbappe headed next season?
