Kylian Mbappé: Was Barcelona his preferred destination over Real Madrid?

It’s no secret that Barcelona were interested in signing Kylian Mbappé in 2017, when the player ultimately chose to join Paris Saint-Germain. However, according to a report by Cadena SER, the future Real Madrid star was actually more interested in joining Barcelona than Real Madrid at the time.

Mbappé reportedly felt that he would have had a better chance of playing regularly at Barcelona than at Madrid. However, Barcelona ultimately decided to sign Ousmane Dembélé instead, paying Borussia Dortmund €105 million for the player. PSG were not willing to match that fee for Mbappé, and so he eventually joined the French capital club.

Of course, Mbappé has since gone on to become one of the best players in the world, and he will now be hoping to achieve great things at Real Madrid. However, it’s interesting to think about what might have been if he had joined Barcelona instead.
