Barcelona 'react' to stunning reports linking them with Kylian Mbappe

Barcelona have 'reacted' to reports linking them with a blockbuster move for Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe.

It had been claimed that Barca were one of five clubs interested in signing Mbappe, with Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham and Inter Milan also mooted.

Barca's reported interest consisted of them offering several players in exchange for the phenom forward as they can't afford to pay a transfer fee, per L'Equipe.

However, it appears the La Liga giants aren't in the running to lure Mbappe away from Paris as club sources state that 'we have nothing do' with the rumours.

According to Spanish journalist Ferran Correas, the club suspect that PSG are using Barca to put pressure on Real Madrid, who are believed to be keen on signing the World Cup winner.

In this transfer window, the Catalan giants have been shrewd, having acquired their three new signings on free transfers. They have snapped up Ilkay Gundogan, Inigo Martinez and Oriol Romeu without paying a transfer fee.

Al Hilal's proposal, meanwhile, could see Mbappe play in Saudi Arabia for one season before completing his dream transfer to Los Blancos.

The Saudi Pro League side have seen their €300 million bid accepted by PSG, who want to sell their prized asset now rather than him leave for free next summer.

Mbappe could earn a monstrous salary of €700 million, which works out at over €13 million-per-week.
