BARCA BOSS UNSURE OVER MBAPPE CHANCES

Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde is unsure if the club could have snapped up France hotshot Kylian Mbappe before he joined PSG.

Football agent Josep Maria Minguella recently claimed that the French teenager had his heart set on moving to the Camp Nou as a replacement for Neymar, who is now his team-mate at PSG.

Barca boss Valverde, when asked if the Catalan giants could have signed the former Monaco youngster, replied: “I don’t know. I don’t know what to say to you. There’s always talk about a lot of players. To my knowledge, we couldn’t have signed him. But I don’t know, no idea… I guess not because he’s not here.”
