AS Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe has decided to leave his current club this summer with a possible destination being touted as Barcelona.
With the imminent sale of Neymar to PSG in a mind-boggling world-record deal, Barcelona are in need for options upward and the Frenchman is seen as an ideal signing for the Catalans.
French daily L’Equipe reported the news late on Wednesday, adding Barca could be interested in the wake of Neymar’s pending transfer to Paris Saint-Germain:
The France international has mostly been linked with rivals Real Madrid so far, and Marca’s Carlos Carpio previously reported a deal had been agreed.
Monaco quickly moved to deny the rumour.
